Complete mitochondrial genome of the dotted gizzard shad Konosirus punctatus (Teleostei, Clupeidae).

Abstract

The complete mitochondrial genome of the dotted gizzard shad Konosirus punctatus (Teleostei, Clupeidae) has been determined. The entire sequence is 16,706 bp in length, with a gene content (13 protein-coding genes, 2 ribosomal RNAs, 22 transfer RNAs and 1 control region) and organization similar to that observed in most other vertebrates. Overall base composition of the light strand was represented as 25.8% of A, 29.0% of C, 25.1% of T and 20.1% of G. With the exception of ND6 and eight tRNA genes, all other mitochondrial genes are encoded on the heavy strand. Tandem repeat sequences were observed in the control region, indicating a useful marker for population genetic studies.
