The variability of mtDNA hypervariable segment I (HVS I) sequences was investigated in a total of 48 birds belonging to 12 Chinese native chicken breeds. [] Key Result Sixteen haplotypes were identified from 35 polymorphic nucleotide sites which accounted for 6.4% of a sequenced 544 bp fragment. Diversity analysis of the haplotypes showed that Tibetan, Langshan and Henan cockfight chicken had only one haplotype, while ancient haplotypes existed in Taihe silky and Chahua chicken.
Genetic variability of mtDNA D-loop region in Korean native chickens.
The results indicated that the combination of the SNPs in the D-loop region can be possibly used for the breed discriminating markers and can be used for designing proper breeding and conservation strategies for Korean native chicken as well as development of breed identification markers.
Analysis of Comparative Phylogenetic Story by Using Autosomal Markers and Mitochondrial Sequences
The results showed that at the autosomal level, the Vietnamese local chicken breeds from different agro-ecological zones represent genetically distinct populations.
Complete mitogenome reveals genetic divergence and phylogenetic relationships among Indian cattle (Bos indicus) breeds
The phylogenetic analysis and genetic distance estimation showed the close genetic relationship among the Indian cattle breeds, whereas distinct genetic differences were observed between Bos indicus and Bos taurus cattle.
Discrimination of Korean Native Chicken Populations Using SNPs from mtDNA and MHC Polymorphisms
To discriminate two commercial Korean native chicken populations (CCP1 and CCP2), single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) from mitochondrial (mt) DNA D-loop sequences and LEI0258 marker polymorphisms in the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) region were investigated.
Genetic diversity analysis of Thai indigenous chickens based on complete sequences of mitochondrial DNA D-loop region
All 4 Thai indigenous chickens are in close relationship with their potential ancestor, the RJF, and a contribution of shared, multiple maternal lineages was in the nature of these varieties, which have been domesticated under neutral selection.
Mitochondrial DNA Variation and Genetic Relationships in Japanese and Korean Cattle
The results suggested that the mitochondrial origins of Japanese Brown were Japanese ancient cattle as well as Japanese Black in despite of the considerable introgression of Korean and European cattle into Japanese Brown.
Molecular Characterization of Indonesian Indigenous Chickens based on Mitochondrial DNA Displacement (D)-loop Sequences
A high mitochondrial D-loop diversity is shown and indicates multiple maternal origins for Indonesian indigenous chickens, suggesting that these populations may share the same maternal ancestor.
The result of the phylogenetic tree showed that both the Southeast and Southwest chicken population had a common ancestor which was the Clade IV from Southeast Asia.
Two Maternal Lineages Revealed by Mitochondrial DNA D-loop Sequences in Chinese Native Water Buffaloes (Bubalus bubalis)
The results showed that two different maternal lineages were involved in the origin of domestic swampbuffaloes in China and the lineage B was probably an introgression from Southeast Asian buffaloes.
The analysis of the mtDNA D-loop polymorphism for assessing the population diversity of the Pavlov chicken breed
There appears to be a tendency for genetic fragmentation of the Pavlov chicken breed, as 11 haplotypes belonging to 2 haplogroups (E1 and A) are found in the population from the Gene Pool research farm.


[Studies of genetic diversity of Zhejiang native chicken breeds].
A total of 539 bases of mitochondrial DNA D-loop region of five native chicken breeds of Zhejiang province and the white leghorn chicken (as the control) were sequenced by DNA sequencing technique,

Observations suggest that the process of tribalization began early in the history of the Amerinds, with relatively little intertribal genetic exchange occurring subsequently.

Microsatellite Analysis of Three Poultry Breeds of India
The estimate of genetic distances revealed Aseel and Nicobari to be more closely related than Miri breed of poultry, indicative of low level of inbreeding, large population size and no or low selection pressure for commercial trait in all three populations.
DNA Fingerprinting of Red Jungle Fowl, Village Chicken and Broilers
The genomic mapping of Red Jungle Fowl, local Village Chicken, and broiler was carried out by random amplified polymorphism DNA (RAPD) technique and indicated that primers like OPA-7, 8 and 9 can be used as species specific DNA markers for these three species of chickens.
Genetic and linguistic differentiation in the Americas.
In the New World, rates of linguistic differentiation appear to be markedly faster than rates of biological differentiation, with little congruence between linguistic hierarchy and the pattern of evolutionary relationships.

In mammals, at least, a species-specific mechanism exists that eliminates sperm-derived mitochondrial DNA from a fertilized egg. The result is the "one female ancestor per generation" rule and three
