The 16746-neucleotide (nt) sequence of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) of Chinese alligator, Alligator sinensis, was determined using the Long-PCR and primer walking methods. As is typical in vertebrates, the mtDNA encodes 13 proteins, 2 rRNA, 22 tRNA genes, and a noncoding control region. The composition of bases is respectively 29.43% A, 24.59% T, 14.86% G, 31.12% C. The gene arrangement differs from the common vertebrate gene arrangement, but is similar to that of other crocodiles. DNA sequence… 
The complete mitochondrial DNA sequence and the phylogenetic position of Achalinus meiguensis (Reptilia: Squamata)
TLDR
The phylogenic analysis by MP and BI analysis showed that the phylogenetic position of A. meiguensis was placed in Caenophidia as a sister group to other advanced snakes with the exclusion of Acrochordus granulatus which was rooted in the Caenphidia, and it was suggested that the subfamily Xenodermatinae, which contains A. usguensis, should be raised to a family rank or higher rank.
The complete mitochondrial genome of salt-water crocodile (Crocodylus porosus) and phylogeny of crocodilians.
TLDR
The nucleotide sequence of the complete mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) molecule of the salt-water crocodile was determined and suggested that the gharial (Gavialis gangeticus) belongs to Crocodylidae, and the analyses suggest that the African slender-snouted crocodile (Crocodylus cataphractus) can be treated as an isolated genus, and constitutes a sister group toCrocodylus.

TLDR
The phylogenetic analysis based on the concatenated data set of 14 genes in the mitochondrial genome of Canidae shows that the raccoon dog has close phylogenetic position with the red fox (Vulpes vulpes) and they constitute a clade which has an equil evolutionary positions with the clade formed by the genera Canis and Cuon.
Complete nucleotide sequences and gene organization of mitochondrial genome of Bufo gargarizans.
TLDR
A phylogenetic tree with maximum likelihood (ML) and maximum parsimony (MP) methods is constructed and the phylogenetic relationships among 11 species of Anura is discussed.
Complete sequence and gene organization of the mitochondrial genome of Siamensis Crocodile (Crocodylus siamensis)
TLDR
The complete sequence of mitochondrial genome of Siamensis Crocodile (Crocodylus siamensis) is determined by using PCR amplification, clone and primer-walking sequencing methods, and the nonstandard stop codes (T) in two protein genes are more than those of most vertebrates.
The complete mitochondrial genome sequence of the little egret (Egretta garzetta)
TLDR
This work determined the complete mitogenome sequence of the little egret (Egretta garzetta) and revealed that Egretta was more closely related to Ardea than to Nycticorax in the Ardeidae, and Platalea wasMore closely related than to Threskiornis than to Nipponia in the Threskaornithidae.
The complete mitochondrial genome of the bagarius yarrelli from honghe river
TLDR
The total length of mitochondrial DNA sequence of the Bagarius yarrelli from the Honghe river of China is determined and denoted a similar gene order to that of the other bony fishes, which include a non-coding control region, a replicated origin, two ribosome RNA (r RNA) genes, 22 transfer RNA (tRNA) genes as well as 13 protein-c coding genes.
Complete mitochondrial genomes confirm the generic placement of the plateau vole, Neodon fuscus
TLDR
The complete mitochondrial genome was successfully assembled and annotated, providing the necessary information for the phylogenetic analyses, and it was demonstrated that N. fuscus had a close relationship with N. irene.

The complete mitochondrial genome of Alligator mississippiensis and the separation between recent archosauria (birds and crocodiles).
TLDR
The complete mitochondrial genome of the alligator, Alligator mississippiensis, was sequenced and maximum-likelihood branch length data of amino acid sequences suggest that the divergence between the avian and crocodilian lineages took place at approximately equal to 254 MYA.
Complete sequence, gene arrangement, and genetic code of mitochondrial DNA of the cephalochordate Branchiostoma floridae (Amphioxus)
TLDR
The 15,083-nucleotide sequence of the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) of the lancelet Branchiostoma floridae (Chordata: Cephalochordata) is determined; it shares the genetic code variations found in vertebrate mtDNAs except that AGA = serine, a code variation found in many invertebrate phyla but not in vertebrates.
Complete DNA sequence of the mitochondrial genome of the ascidian Halocynthia roretzi (Chordata, Urochordata).
TLDR
The gene order of Halocynthia mtDNA is completely different from that of vertebrate mtDNAs except for tRNA(His)-tRNA(Ser)(GCU), suggesting that evolutionary change in the mt-gene structure is much accelerated in the urochordate line compared with that in vertebrates.
The complete nucleotide sequence of a snake (Dinodon semicarinatus) mitochondrial genome with two identical control regions.
TLDR
Southern hybridization experiments using mtDNAs purified from multiple akamata individuals showed that the duplicate state of the control region is not a transient or unstable feature found in a particular individual, but that it stably occurs in mitochondrial genomes of the species.
Organization of the Mitochondrial Genome of a Deep-Sea Fish, Gonostoma gracile (Teleostei: Stomiiformes): First Example of Transfer RNA Gene Rearrangements in Bony Fishes
TLDR
The complete nucleotide sequence of the mitochondrial genome for a deep-sea fish, Gonostoma gracile, was determined and two steps of tandem duplication of gene regions, each followed by deletions of genes, can be invoked as mechanisms generating tRNA gene rearrangements in a bony fish mitochondrial genome.
The complete nucleotide sequence of the mitochondrial DNA of the fin whale,Balaenoptera physalus
TLDR
A comparison between the cytochromeb gene of the fin whale and cy tochromeb sequences in the literature, including dolphin (Stenella) sequences, identified the cetaceans as monophyletic and the artiodactyls as their closest relatives.

TLDR
The results challenge the classic view of turtles as the only survivors of primary anapsid reptiles and imply that turtles might have secondarily lost their skull fenestration.
Complete nucleotide sequence and gene rearrangement of the mitochondrial genome of the Japanese pond frog Rana nigromaculata.
TLDR
The complete nucleotide sequence of the mitochondrial genome of the Japanese pond frog Rana nigromaculata was determined and a quartet-puzzling tree showed that three amphibian species form a monophyletic clade and that the caecilian is a sister group of the monophyletsic Anura.
The mitochondrial genomes of the iguana (Iguana iguana) and the caiman (Caiman crocodylus): implications for amniote phylogeny
TLDR
The complete mitochondrial genomes of two reptiles, the common iguana and the caiman, were sequenced in order to investigate phylogenetic questions of tetrapod evolution and corroborated the view that turtles are at the base of the bird–crocodile branch.
Interordinal relationships of birds and other reptiles based on whole mitochondrial genomes.
TLDR
Support is found for a sister relationship between turtles and a bird/crocodilian clade, and for rejecting both the Haemothermia hypothesis and the placement of turtles as basal within the phylogenetic tree for amniote animals.
