Nuclear mtDNA pseudogenes as a source of new variants of the mtDNA cytochrome b haplotypes: A case study of Siberian rubythroat Luscinia calliope (Muscicapidae, Aves)


Sequence polymorphism of the mitochondrial DNA cytochrome b gene fragment was analyzed in 21 specimens of subspecies Luscinia calliope calliope (Pallas, 1776) and two specimens of L. c. anadyrensis (Portenko, 1939). On sequence chromatograms, in 19 specimens of L. c. calliope, double peaks of heteroplasmy type in the taxon-specific positions were revealed… (More)
