We have analysed the genetic diversity of South and Central American (SCA) goats by partially sequencing the mitochondrial control region of 93 individuals with a wide geographical distribution. Nucleotide and haplotype diversities reached values of 0.020 +/- 0.00081 and 0.963 +/- 0.0012 respectively. We have also observed a rather weak phylogeographic structure, with almost 69% of genetic variation included in the within-breed variance component. The topology of a median-joining network… Expand
Genetic diversity and molecular phylogeography of Chinese domestic goats by large-scale mitochondrial DNA analysis
TLDR
The genetic diversity results further supported the previous view of multiple maternal origins of Chinese domestic goats, and the results on the phylogenetic relationship contributed to a better understanding of the history of goat domestication and modern production of domestic goats. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA diversity and origins of domestic goats in Southwest China (excluding Tibet)
TLDR
Mitochondrial DNA D-loop sequences from 18 Chinese domestic goat breeds used to investigate breed genetic diversity, origin and phylogeography revealed that there were two mtDNA haplogroups identified in domestic goats in Southwest China, in which haplogroup A was predominant. Expand
Phylogeny and Patterns of Diversity of Goat mtDNA Haplogroup A Revealed by Resequencing Complete Mitogenomes
TLDR
The pattern of variation in protein-coding genes revealed an overwhelming role of purifying selection, with the quota of surviving variants approaching neutrality, and confirmed that a remarkable proportion of pre-existing Hg A diversity became incorporated into domestic stocks. Expand
Maintenance of mtDNA diversity in Kalahari Red goat of South Africa imported to Nigeria
Analysis of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) was carried out using 38 Kalahari Red (KR) goats randomly sampled from a flock imported into Nigeria in 2011 by the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta,Expand
Comprehensive analysis of mitochondrial DNA based genetic diversity in Indian goats.
TLDR
Estimates of population demographic parameters from mismatch analysis suggested a relatively good fit to the model of either spatial or demographic expansion of Indian goats, which can be attributed to unstructured animal breeding, dwindling pastures and nomadic pastoralism. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA Sequence Analyses and Phylogenetic Relationships Among Two Nigerian Goat Breeds and the South African Kalahari Red
TLDR
The study has revealed very high diversity within the three breeds which are not strongly separated from each other based on mtDNA analysis, which will be useful in planning improvement and conservation programs for the local populations. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA D-loop sequence variation in maternal lineages of Iranian native horses.
TLDR
The presence of haplotypes E and K in all native Iranian horse breeds lineages of the haplogroups D and K is consistent with a geographical west-east direction of increasing frequency of these haplotypes and a genetic fusion in Iranianhorse breeds. Expand
Mitochondrial D-loop sequences reveal a mixture of endemism and immigration in Egyptian goat populations
TLDR
Overall, the structure of the Egyptian goat population is characterized by a high degree of homogeneity among populations from the north-western coastal region, the Nile Delta and the upper and middle regions of the Nile valley, but with possible introgression of rarer haplotypes into populations at the southern and eastern extremities of the country.

Maternal variability of Croatian Spotted goat (Capra hircus)
TLDR
This study provides the first characterization of maternal ancestry and mitochondrial DNA diversity in the Croatian Spotted goat, the most important autochthonous goat breed in Croatia, suggesting at least one population expansion. Expand
D-loop sequence mitochondrial DNA variability of Sarda goat and other goat breeds and populations reared in the Mediterranean area.
TLDR
New haplotypes of goats reared in the Mediterranean area were identified and the majority of Italian goats belonged to haplogroup A, which confirmed worldwide distribution and diversity of haplogroups A. Expand

Mitochondrial diversity and phylogeographic structure of Chinese domestic goats.
TLDR
A larger genetic variation in eastern Asia than southern Asia and the pattern of phylogeographic variation in lineage B suggest that at least one subclade of lineage B originated from eastern Asia. Expand
Strong phylogeographic relationships among three goat breeds from the Canary Islands
TLDR
The Canarian D-loop haplotype can be efficiently genotyped by using DNA isolated from milk and cheese samples, which paves the way for the future establishment of a Canary breed identity test for these dairy products. Expand
Large-Scale Mitochondrial DNA Analysis of the Domestic Goat Reveals Six Haplogroups with High Diversity
TLDR
Standard criteria for the definition of the different haplogroups is proposed based on the result of mismatch analysis and on the use of sequences of reference for clarifying the nomenclature of mitochondrial haplog groups in other domestic species. Expand
Multiple maternal origins and weak phylogeographic structure in domestic goats
TLDR
It is suggested that goats and other farm animals have multiple maternal origins with a possible center of origin in Asia, as well as in the Fertile Crescent, and goat populations are surprisingly less genetically structured than cattle 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
Geographical partitioning of goat diversity in Europe and the Middle East.
TLDR
Observations support the hypothesis that domestic livestock migrated from the Middle East towards western and northern Europe and indicate that breed formation was more systematic in north-central Europe than in the MiddleEast. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships among Spanish goats breeds.
TLDR
A weak phylogeographical structure in the Iberian Peninsula breeds is revealed, reflecting the non-existence of breed isolation because of traditional seasonal pastoralism and annual long-distance migrations. 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.

Phylogeography and origin of Indian domestic goats.
TLDR
The present investigation of 363 goats belonging to 10 different breeds from different geographic regions of India using mtDNA sequence data from the HVRI region finds evidence for population structure and novel lineages in Indian goats and proposes a more complex origin for domestic goats. Expand
Divergent mtDNA lineages of goats in an Early Neolithic site, far from the initial domestication areas
TLDR
It is argued for substantial gene flow among goat populations dating back to the early neolithisation of Europe and for a dual domestication scenario in the Near East, with two independent but essentially contemporary origins (of both A and C domestic lineages) and several more remote and/or later origins.
