This article describes the complete sequences of the mitochondrial DNA displacement loop (D-loop) region and cytochrome b gene from domestic goats in Laos (Laos native) and wild goat “markhor” (C. falconeri). The wild goat “bezoar” (Capra aegagrus) has been considered to be the strongest candidate for the ancestor of the domestic goats (C. hircus); however, there is not sufficient molecular data to verify the hypothesis at present. In phylogenetic analyses, two wild goats, the markhor and the… Expand
Evolutionary history of wild goat (Capra aegagrus) and the goat (C. hircus) based on the analysis of mitochondrial and nuclear DNA polymorphism: Implications for conservation and for the origin of the domestication
TLDR
A large genetic diversity, corresponding to a large number of mtDNA haplotypes, was captured at the initial step of the effective domestication of goats, and this data supports a new two-step large-scale domestication scenario for goats. Expand
Evolutionary history of the genus Capra (Mammalia, Artiodactyla): discordance between mitochondrial DNA and Y-chromosome phylogenies.
TLDR
It is suggested that a plausible scenario involves mtDNA introgression between ancestral taxa before the relatively recent colonization of Western Europe, the Caucasus Mountains, and East Africa by Capra populations. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA diversity of Pakistani goats.
TLDR
The phylogenetic analyses and sequence divergence established four distinct mt-lineages termed as A, B and C (previously reported) and a new lineage D, which suggested that at least four different strains of wild Capra might have been the source of the modern domestic goats. Expand
The Eurasian Steppe is an important goat propagation route: A phylogeographic analysis using mitochondrial DNA and Y-chromosome sequences of Kazakhstani goats.
TLDR
Analysis of the distribution of mtDNA haplogroups and SRY haplotypes from Eurasia and Africa demonstrated genetic similarity among animals from Kazakhstan, Mongolia, and Northwest China located on the Eurasian Steppe belt, suggesting that the Eurasia-Africa steppe belt was an important propagation route for goats to Central Asia. Expand
GENETIC DIFFERENTIATION OF THE WILD GOATS (GENUS Capra) BASED ON THE ANALYSIS OF MITOCHONDRIAL GENE CYTOCHROME B AND FRAGMENT OF NUCLEAR GENE SRY
TLDR
The data confirm the assumption that ancient interspecific hybridization might have had a great significance for formation of the modern genetic diversity of Capra species and there is some genetic evidence of recent and contemporary hybridization in wild goats. Expand
The mtDNA catalogue of all Portuguese autochthonous goat (Capra hircus) breeds: high diversity of female lineages at the western fringe of European distribution
TLDR
This work analysed the female gene pool of all Portuguese autochthonous breeds through the mtDNA HVI sequencing of 288 unrelated animals sampled throughout the country to confirm that goats stand out among most of domesticates as exceptionally diverse and showing an unparalleled degree of mobility of animals used for reproductive purposes. Expand
Evidence for Introgressive Hybridization of Captive Markhor (Capra falconeri) with Domestic Goat: Cautions for Reintroduction
TLDR
Levels of differentiation between some Capra falconeri lineages and modern domestic goats were similar to levels between other wild goat species and domestic goats, suggesting occurrence of shared ancestral polymorphism among markhor subspecies and/or ancient or recent gene exchange between subspecies. Expand
Domestication Process of the Goat Revealed by an Analysis of the Nearly Complete Mitochondrial Protein-Encoding Genes
TLDR
The opposite pattern observed in the goat mitochondrial genome data indicates the process of domestication is more complex than may be presently appreciated and cannot be explained only by a simple relaxation model. Expand

Bezoar (Capra aegagrus) Is a Matriarchal Candidate for Ancestor of Domestic Goat (Capra hircus): Evidence from the Mitochondrial DNA Diversity
TLDR
A neighbor-joining and parsimony phylogenetic tree constructed using the sequences showed that the domestic goats and the bezoar belong to the same cluster, while the markhor showed a distinct cluster separate from that of the domestic/bezoar cluster. Expand
Mitochondrial diversity and the origins of African and European cattle.
The nature of domestic cattle origins in Africa are unclear as archaeological data are relatively sparse. The earliest domesticates were humpless, or Bos taurus, in morphology and may have shared aExpand
Mitochondrial DNA variation and evolution of Japanese black cattle (Bos taurus).
TLDR
Complete mitochondrial DNA displacement loop sequences from 32 Japanese Black cattle are described and the analysis of these data in conjunction with previously published sequences from African, European, and Indian subjects suggest an interchange of variants that may be ancient, perhaps a legacy of the first introduction of domesticates to East Asia. Expand
Evidence for two independent domestications of cattle.
TLDR
Application of a molecular clock suggests that the two major mtDNA clades diverged at least 200,000, and possibly as much as 1 million, years ago, as evidence for two separate domestication events of different subspecies of the aurochs, Bos primigenius and Bos taurus. Expand
Evolution of the cytochromeb gene of mammals
TLDR
Comparisons of these cytochromeb sequences support current structure-function models for this membrane-spanning protein, including that part of the outer surface which includes the Qo redox center is more constrained than the remainder of the molecule, namely, the transmembrane segments and the surface that protrudes into the mitochondrial matrix. Expand
Evolution of the cytochrome b gene of mammals.
TLDR
Comparisons of these cytochrome b sequences support current structure-function models for this membrane-spanning protein, which suggests that the outer surface which includes the Qo redox center is more constrained than the remainder of the molecule, namely, the transmembrane segments and the surface that protrudes into the mitochondrial matrix. Expand
Phylogenetic affiliation of ancient and contemporary humans inferred from mitochondrial DNA.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis indicated that part of the Asians, including the Japanese, subsequently diverged from the majority of Africans, and that Asians can therefore be separated into two distinct groups. Expand
Effect of mitochondrial DNA variation on carcass traits of Japanese Black cattle.
TLDR
It is suggested that cytoplasmic genetic effects are important sources of variation for carcass traits in Japanese Black cattle. Expand
Complete sequence of bovine mitochondrial DNA. Conserved features of the mammalian mitochondrial genome.
TLDR
The bovine 12 S and 16 S Ribosomal RNA genes, when compared with those from human mitochondrial DNA, show conserved features that are consistent with proposed secondary structure models for the ribosomal RNAs. Expand
The 'evolutionary signal' of homoplasy in protein-coding gene sequences and its consequences for a priori weighting in phylogeny.
TLDR
The results obtained from a data set of 32 sequences of Artiodactyla indicate that evolution of the cytochrome b is governed by differential constraints between the six substitutions-types, between the three codon-positions, and between the two mtDNA strands. Expand
