Mitochondrial DNA, purified from 36 samples of 23 local populations which are widely distributed in Vietnam, Burma, and 10 provinces of China, has been analyzed to model the phylogeny of rhesus monkeys. The 20 local populations of China may represent nearly all major populations in China. Using 20 restriction endonucleases of 6-bp recognition, we observed a total of 50–61 sites in the various samples. By combining the cleavage patterns for each enzyme, the 36 samples were classified into 23… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

Mitochondrial DNA variation in Chinese and Indian rhesus macaques (Macaca mulatta)
TLDR
The results suggest that Indian and Chinese rhesus macaques were reproductively isolated during most, if not all, of the Pleistocene, and that some gene flow westward into India was subsequently reestablished. Expand
Variation in blood proteins and mitochondrial DNA within and between local populations of longtail macaques,Macaca fascicularis on the Island of Java, Indonesia
TLDR
Both nuclear diversity and mitochondrial diversity showed a significantly positive correlation with geographic distance and there was no significant correlation between these two genetic markers, however. Expand
Radiation and phylogeography in the Japanese macaque, Macaca fuscata.
TLDR
There were high genetic similarities between both species and only two positions were fixed within each species, which supports the inclusion of the Japanese macaque in a single species with eastern populations of rhesus macaques. Expand
Intraspecific phylogeographic mitochondrial DNA (D-loop) variation of Gelada baboon, Theropithecus gelada, in Ethiopia
TLDR
Considering the significant nuclear, mitochondrial, morphological, and behavioral differences, it is believed that the newly found gelada population is a distinct subspecies. Expand
Zoogeography of Vietnamese primates

Based on geographic complementarity of congeneric taxa, the 22 species or well-defined subspecies of primates that inhabit Vietnam may be allocated to nine zoogeographic groups (lorises, two;Expand
Hybridization and Stratification of Nuclear Genetic Variation in Macaca mulatta and M. fascicularis
TLDR
The authors' results suggest there has been significant interspecific nuclear gene flow between rhesus macaques and long-tailed macaques on the mainland, and comparisons of mainland and island populations of long-tails macaques reflect marked genetic subdivisions due to barriers to migration. Expand
Mitochondrial cytochrome b gene sequences of old world monkeys: With special reference on evolution of Asian colobines
TLDR
The results support the following conclusions: that the Old World monkeys are divided into two subfamilies; that among the colobines, Colobus, the African group, diverged first, and Nasalis and Rhinopithecus form a sister clade to Pygathrix; and that there are two clades within leaf monkeys. Expand
INTERSPECIES HYBRIDIZATION AND THE STRATIFICATION OF NUCLEAR GENETIC VARIATION OF RHESUS (MACACA MULATTA) AND LONG-TAILED MACAQUES (MACACA FASCICULARIS).
TLDR
There has been significant interspecies nuclear gene flow between rhesus macaques and long-tailed macaques on the mainland, and comparisons of mainland and island populations of long-tails macaques reflect marked genetic subdivisions due to barriers to migration. Expand
Morphometrical comparison between Indian- and Chinese-derived rhesus macaques (Macaca mulatta)
TLDR
The most significant morphometric difference found between the two populations was in tail length, which was ca. Expand
Molecular Characterization of Entamoeba spp. in Wild Taihangshan Macaques (Macaca mulatta tcheliensis) in China
TLDR
Important information is provided about the prevalence and diversity of Entamoeba species infecting wild Taihangshan macaques in China and enough attention should be paid to monitor the potential interspecies transmission in the region. Expand

TLDR
This work has proved that the restriction enzyme analysis is useful for elucidating genetic variations in Japanese monkeys. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships among Japanese, rhesus, Formosan, and crab-eating monkeys, inferred from restriction-enzyme analysis of mitochondrial DNAs.
TLDR
Findings suggest that the crab-eating monkey diverged from the other three monkeys approximately 1.5-3.0 Myr before the present (Mybp) and that the Japanese, rhesus, and Formosan monkeys diverged approximately 0.9-1.8 Mybp, although the branching order cannot be determined conclusively. Expand

TLDR
The results suggest that within both the fascicularis and sinica groups genetic distances are small between members and that the status of the species within the groups may require further investigation. Expand
[Mitochondrial DNA polymorphism in five species of the genus Macaca].
TLDR
The results support Fooden's (1976) classification of the genus Macaca into four species groups on the basis of morphologic data and Divergence times of the six species were estimated on the mean rate of sequences divergence. Expand

GENETIC VARIATIONS WITHIN AND BETWEEN SPECIES OF ASIAN MACAQUES
TLDR
It is considered that a biologically more acceptable system of classification of the Asian macaques could be reconstructed by lowering the so-called “genus” to the rank of species and the “species’ to theRank of subspecies. Expand
Evolution of mitochondrial DNA in monkeys, apes, and humans
TLDR
The data support the origin of Homo sapiens by regional phyletic transition from H. erectus, starting in Africa in the Middle Pleistocene, and oppose the hypothesis of rapid world-wide replacement by migration from a single source. Expand

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. Expand

TLDR
The data indicate that individuals differ from a postulated ancestral mtDNA sequence at 0.18% of their base pairs, and suggest that group-specific patterns of cleavage exist. Expand
