The noncoding region between tRNAPro and the large conserved sequence block is the most variable region in the mammalian mitochondrial DNA D-loop region. This variable region (ca. 270 bp) of four species of Equus, including Mongolian and Japanese native domestic horses as well as Przewalskii's (or Mongolian) wild horse, were sequenced. These data were compared with our recently published Thoroughbred horse mitochondrial DNA sequences. The evolutionary rate of this region among the four species… 
Mitochondrial DNA and the origins of the domestic horse
TLDR
The extensive genetic diversity of these 77 ancestral mares leads us to conclude that several distinct horse populations were involved in the domestication of the horse.
Genetic Diversity of Cheju Horses (Equus caballus) Determined by Using Mitochondrial DNA D-loop Polymorphism
TLDR
The data together with others' suggest that most horse breeds tested with reasonably sufficient numbers of samples are diverse in their maternal lineages and also are not uniquely different from each other.
A survey of equid mitochondrial DNA: Implications for the evolution, genetic diversity and conservation of Equus
TLDR
The phylogenetic analysis of the mitochondrial DNA sequences of the control region and 12S rRNA gene provides further evidence that the deepest node in the phylogeny of the extant species is a divergence between twolineages, with the later speciation events of the zebras and asses occurring either as one or more rapid radiations, or withextensive secondary contact after speciation.
Horse domestication and conservation genetics of Przewalski's horse inferred from sex chromosomal and autosomal sequences.
TLDR
X chromosomal and autosomal data do not place Przewalski's horses in a separate clade within phylogenetic trees for horses, suggesting a close relationship between domestic and Przine's horses and the hypothesis that very few male horses along with numerous female horses founded the various domestic horse breeds is supported.
Fixed nucleotide differences on the Y chromosome indicate clear divergence between Equus przewalskii and Equus caballus.
The phylogenetic relationship between Equus przewalskii and E. caballus is often a matter of debate. Although these taxa have different chromosome numbers, they do not form monophyletic clades in a
FISH analysis comparing genome organization in the domestic horse (Equus caballus) to that of the Mongolian wild horse (E. przewalskii)
TLDR
A comparative gene map between ECA and EPR by FISH mapping 46 domestic horse-derived BAC clones containing genes previously mapped to ECA chromosomes indicated that all ECAand EPR chromosomes were homologous as predicted by GTG banding, but provide new information in that the EPR acrocentric chromosomes EPR23 and E PR24 were shown to be homologues of the ECA metacentric chromosome ECA5.
Domestication of the horse: results based on microsatellite and mitochondrial DNA markers
TLDR
An overview of the latest major findings in studies based on horse microsatellite data and mitochondrial DNA sequences is given.
Genetic Diversity of mtDNA D-loop and Maternal Origin of Three Chinese Native Horse Breeds
TLDR
The Neighbour-Joining (NJ) phylogenetic tree based on 247 bp of 43 D-loop sequences demonstrated the presence of seven major lineages (A to G), indicating that the three native horse breeds in western China originated from multiple maternal origins.
Mitochondrial D-loop sequence variation among autochthonous horse breeds in Croatia.
TLDR
Results indicate the presence of many ancient maternal lineages with high diversity in mtDNA, especially for the critically endangered breed such as Murinsulaner horse.
Whole mitochondrial genome sequencing of domestic horses reveals incorporation of extensive wild horse diversity during domestication
TLDR
This study provides a window into the maternal origins of extant domestic horses and confirms that modern domestic breeds present a wide sample of the mtDNA diversity found in ancestral, now extinct, wild horse populations.

Mitochondrial DNA evolution in the genus Equus.
TLDR
The variation between species supports a divergence of extant lineages from a common ancestor approximately 3.9 Myr before the present, and trees constructed according to the parsimony principle indicate that the three extant zebra species represent a monophyletic group.
Polymorphic sequence in the D-loop region of equine mitochondrial DNA.
TLDR
In comparison of the sequences among three thoroughbred horses, it was determined that the region between tRNA(Pro) and the large central conserved sequence block was the richest in variation.
Rapid evolution of animal mitochondrial DNA.
TLDR
The rate of evolution of the mitochondrial genome appears to exceed that of the single-copy fraction of the nuclear genome by a factor of about 10 and is likely to be an extremely useful molecule to employ for high-resolution analysis of the evolutionary process.
Human mitochondrial DNA variation and evolution: analysis of nucleotide sequences from seven individuals.
TLDR
Analysis of nucleotide sequence variation in an approximately 900-base pair region of the human mitochondrial DNA molecule encompassing the heavy strand origin of replication and the D-loop revealed several significant biases, most notably a strand dependence of substitution type and a 32-fold bias favoring transitions over transversions.
Hybrid origin of Japanese mice "Mus musculus molossinus": evidence from restriction analysis of mitochondrial DNA.
TLDR
A survey of restriction-site haplotypes of mitochondrial DNA showed that Japanese mice have two main maternal lineages, which suggest that M. molossinus is a hybrid between ancestral colonies of M. m.
Estimation of the number of nucleotide substitutions in the control region of mitochondrial DNA in humans and chimpanzees.
TLDR
A new mathematical method for estimating the number of transitional and transversional substitutions per site, as well as the total number of nucleotide substitutions, suggested that the transition/transversion ratio for the entire control region was approximately 15 and nearly the same for the two species.
African populations and the evolution of human mitochondrial DNA.
TLDR
The African origin hypothesis of human mtDNA evolution is supported by two statistical tests and two hypervariable segments of mtDNA were sequenced from 189 people of diverse geographic origin, including 121 native Africans.
Polymorphic sites and the mechanism of evolution in human mitochondrial DNA.
TLDR
This example, along with that for the mitochondrial rRNA genes and the nuclear genes coding for mitochondrial ribosomal proteins, provides evidence for coevolution between specific nuclear and mitochondrial genes.
Interfamilial and intrafamilial genomic diversity and molecular phylogeny of human T-cell lymphotropic virus type I from Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands.
TLDR
Using the maximum parsimony and neighbor-joining methods, phylogenetic analysis indicated that the HTLV-I strains from Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands formed a monophyletic group and that the Melanesian and cosmopolitan strains of HT LV have evolved along two major geographically dependent lineages.
