Patterns of mitochondrial restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) variation were used to resolve more recent relationships among the species of the Felidae ocelot lineage, domestic cat lineage, and pantherine lineage. Twenty-five of 28 restriction enzymes revealed site variation in at least 1 of 21 cat species. The ocelot lineage was resolved into three separate sistertaxa groups: Geoffroy's cat (Oncifelis geoffroyi) and kodkod (O. guigna), ocelot (Leopardus pardalis) and margay (L… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

Supermatrix and species tree methods resolve phylogenetic relationships within the big cats, Panthera (Carnivora: Felidae).
TLDR
An alternative, highly supported interpretation of the evolutionary history of the pantherine lineage is provided using novel and published DNA sequence data from the autosomes, both sex chromosomes and the mitochondrial genome, which yields a robust consensus topology supporting the monophyly of lion and leopard, with jaguar sister to these species, as well as a sister species relationship of tiger and snow leopard.

Phylogenetic reconstruction of the felidae using 16S rRNA and NADH-5 mitochondrial genes
The Felidae family represents a challenge for molecular phylogenetic reconstruction because it consists of 38 living species that evolved from a relatively recent common ancestor (10–15 million yearsExpand
Small spotted bodies with multiple specific mitochondrial DNAs: existence of diverse and differentiated tigrina lineages or species (Leopardus spp: Felidae, Mammalia) throughout Latin America
TLDR
Two sets of mitochondrial (mt) DNA data from tigrinas sampled in Costa Rica, Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, northwestern and northeastern Argentina and southern Brazil revealed the existence of seven different tigrina-like haplogroups, which could represent, at least, 4–6 different tigrate species following the Phylogenetic Species Concept (PSC). Expand
Evolutionary analysis of a large mtDNA translocation (numt) into the nuclear genome of the Panthera genus species.
TLDR
The recent transposition of 12,536 bp of the 17 kb mitochondrial genome into the nucleus of the common ancestor of the five Panthera genus species suggests an origin for the Panthera numt at around 3.5 million years ago, prior to the radiation of theFive extant Panthera species. Expand
Phylogenetic assessment of introns and SINEs within the Y chromosome using the cat family felidae as a species tree.
TLDR
The data suggest X-degenerate genes within the NRY are singularly powerful markers and offer a valuable patrilineal perspective in species evolution. Expand
Evolution and systematics of the feliform Carnivora
TLDR
Detailed study on new fossil remains of extinct feliform nimravides allows a new hypothesis concerning interrelationships within this family to be proposed, which indicates lack of sister relationships of Nimravinae and Barbourofelinae. Expand
Phylogeography and Genetic Ancestry of Tigers (Panthera tigris)
TLDR
To investigate the species' evolutionary history and to establish objective methods for subspecies recognition, voucher specimens of blood, skin, hair, and/or skin biopsies from 134 tigers with verified geographic origins or heritage across the whole distribution range were examined for molecular markers. Expand
Highly conserved D-loop-like nuclear mitochondrial sequences (Numts) in tiger (Panthera tigris)
TLDR
Although the mtDNA D-loop sequence has a rapid rate of evolution, the 287-bp Numts are highly conserved; they are nearly identical in tiger subspecies and only 1.742% different between tiger and leopard, indicating that such sequences represent molecular 'fossils' that can shed light on evolution of the mitochondrial genome and may be the most appropriate outgroup for phylogenetic analysis.

New material of Pleistocene cats (Carnivora, Felidae) from Southern South America, with comments on biogeography and the fossil record
Abstract In this paper the systematic position and age of several Pleistocene cat remains found in southern South American are studied, in an attempt to more fully document the scarce record of theExpand
The complete mitochondrial genome of Panthera pardus (Felidae: Pantheriinae), a first-class national-protected wild animal from China
TLDR
The phylogenetic trees based on 13 protein-coding genes indicated that Panthera species formed a monophyletic group which is sister to the clade comprised by the genus Neofelis within Pantheriinae. Expand

Molecular evolution of mitochondrial 12S RNA and cytochrome b sequences in the pantherine lineage of Felidae.
TLDR
DNA sequence comparisons of two mitochondrial DNA genes were used to infer phylogenetic relationships among 17 Felidae species, notably 15 in the previously described pantherine lineage, and suggested the recognition of a recently evolved monophyletic genus Panthera. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of mitochondrial cytochrome b and 12S rRNA sequences in the Felidae: ocelot and domestic cat lineages.
TLDR
Phylogenetic reconstruction supports more recent, intralineage associations but fails to completely resolve interlineage relationships, and implications of the relative recency of felid evolution, presence of ancestral polymorphisms, and influence of outgroups in placement of the topological root are discussed.

The results suggest that modern South American felids are monophyletic and evolved rapidly after the formation of the Panama land bridge between North and South America. Expand

Over the past two decades a number of technical advances have been made which have improved the resolving power of differential chromosome staining procedures, enabling the identification of homologous elements both within and between species. Expand
Phylogeographic Subspecies Recognition in Leopards (Panthera pardus): Molecular Genetic Variation
TLDR
The incorporation of precise definitions for taxonomic units into wildlife legislation has necessitated the reevaluation of the taxonomy of endangered and threatened species, and it is recommended that subspecific leopard taxonomy be revised to comprise eight subspecies. Expand
A MOLECULAR PHYLOGENY OF THE FELIDAE: IMMUNOLOGICAL DISTANCE
TLDR
The phylogenetic distances between 34 of the 37 extant species of Felidae were estimated using albumin immunological distances (AID) and the derived topology is highly consistent with the karyological disposition of these species, as well as with the fossil record of this family. Expand
Genetic Variability and Biochemical Systematics of Domestic and Wild Cat Populations (Felis silvestris: Felidae)
TLDR
Dendrograms indicate that the domestic cat belongs to the African wild cat lineage, which supports current hypotheses on cat domestication, and that the European and African wild cats diverged approximately 20,000 years ago. Expand
Mitochondrial-DNA Phylogeny of Deer (Cervidae)
TLDR
Mitochondrial-DNA restriction-site maps were constructed for several cervid taxa in the subfamilies Cervinae and Odocoileinae, finding relationships were incongruent with some generic designations and intraspecific divergence in Odocoiles hemionus was greater than that between some genera. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA evolution at a turtle's pace: evidence for low genetic variability and reduced microevolutionary rate in the Testudines.
TLDR
Evidence is compiled suggesting a slowdown in mean microevolutionary rate for turtle mitochondrial DNA, and consistency in the direction of the inferred pattern suggests the need for caution in acceptance of a universal mtDNA-clock calibration for higher animals. Expand

TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of mitochondrial gene sequences confirms the recent transfer of the cytoplasmic mtDNA sequences to the domestic cat nucleus and recapitulates evolutionary relationships between mammal species. Expand
