The fresh water pufferfish Tetraodon nigroviridis is a model organism for studying evolution of genome and gene functions, but its mitochondrial genome (mtDNA) sequence is still not available. We determined the complete nucleotide sequence of its mtDNA using shotgun sequencing. The T. nigroviridis mtDNA was 16,462 bp, and contained 13 protein coding genes, 22 tRNAs, 2 rRNAs and a major non-coding region. The gene order was identical to the common type of vertebrate mtDNA, whereas the G+C… Expand
The complete mitochondrial genome of Lagocephalus sceleratus (Tetraodontiformes; Tetraodontidae) and phylogenetic studies of Tetraodontidae
The phylogenetic relationship of 37 Tetraodontidae species based on the complete genome was analyzed, and the result showed that L. sceleratus was clustered with other Lagocephalus species. Expand
Bio-prospecting and characterization of optional elements present in the mtDNA rnl-region within species of ophiostomatoid fungi
The data showed that the phylogeny of the FIEGs appears to be congruent with the phyìogenY of the host gene (RPS3) suggesting that mcs once inserted in the rps3 seems to be passed aÌong in a vertical manner. Expand
The Complete Mitochondrial Genome of the Formosan Ferret-Badger (Melogale Moschata Subaurantiaca)
A complete mitochondrial genome of the Formosan ferret-badger (Melogale moschata subaurantiaca) was obtained by PCR amplification and DNA sequencing. The genome spans 16,497 bp that includes 13Expand
Fish mitochondrial genomics: sequence, inheritance and functional variation
Although the number of studies using fishes as models in mitochondrial research is limited, many fish model species provide excellent opportunity for furthering the understanding of mitochondrial genomes, their interactions with the nuclear genome, and the potential for understanding the mechanisms of how functional variation effects organisms and how selection for positivefunctional variation effects population variation.

The Complete Mitochondrial Genome Sequence and Characterization of Single-Nucleotide Polymorphisms in the Control Region of the Asian Seabass (Lates calcarifer)
Phylogenetic analyses using concatenated amino acid sequences of 12 protein-coding genes of 30 fish species representing 14 suborders clearly showed Lates calcarifer was located in the cluster of fish species from the order Perciformes, supporting the traditional systematic classification. Expand
Complete Mitochondrial DNA Sequence of Tigriopus japonicus (Crustacea: Copepoda)
The complete nucleotide sequence of the mitochondrial genome was determined for a harpacticoid copepod, Tigriopus japonicus (Crustacea), using an approach that employs a long polymerase chain reaction technique and primer walking, resulting in one of the smallest mitochondrial genomes in the arthropod lineage.

Complete sequence of the mitochondrial DNA of the annelid worm Lumbricus terrestris.
We have determined the complete nucleotide (nt) sequence of the mitochondrial genome of an oligochaete annelid, the earthworm Lumbricus terrestris. This genome contains the 37 genes typical ofExpand
The mitochondrial genome of the brachiopod Laqueus rubellus.
Combined cooccurrence of such gene assortments indicates that the Laqueus mt genome is similar to the annelid Lumbricus, the mollusc Katharina, and the octocoral Sarcophyton mt genomes, each with statistical significance. Expand
The complete mitochondrial genome of a tree frog, Polypedates megacephalus (Amphibia: Anura: Rhacophoridae), and a novel gene organization in living amphibians.
A rough timescale for living amphibian evolution is provided using a molecular clock-independent Bayesian approach for inferring dating information from molecular phylogenies, and phylogenetic analyses of a whole mitochondrial genome data set suggest a close relationship between salamanders and frogs. Expand
The mitochondrial genome of the pufferfish, Fugu rubripes, and ordinal teleostean relationships.
The phylogenetic analyses, which were based on the concatenated amino acid sequences of twelve protein-coding mt genes, placed the fugu among the percomorphs and strongly suggest that three teleostean orders, the Perciforms, Zeiformes and Scorpaeniformes, are paraphyletic. Expand
The complete sequence of the zebrafish (Danio rerio) mitochondrial genome and evolutionary patterns in vertebrate mitochondrial DNA.
It appears that even with such a large number of nucleotide characters (11,592), limited taxon sampling can lead to problems associated with extensive evolution on long phyletic branches. Expand
Complete sequence, gene arrangement, and genetic code of mitochondrial DNA of the cephalochordate Branchiostoma floridae (Amphioxus)
The 15,083-nucleotide sequence of the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) of the lancelet Branchiostoma floridae (Chordata: Cephalochordata) is determined; it shares the genetic code variations found in vertebrate mtDNAs except that AGA = serine, a code variation found in many invertebrate phyla but not in vertebrates.

Mitochondrial genome of the Chinese mitten crab Eriocheir japonica sinenesis (Brachyura: Thoracotremata: Grapsoidea) reveals a novel gene order and two target regions of gene rearrangements.
The complete 16,354 bp mitochondrial DNA sequence of the Chinese mitten crab Eriocheir japonica sinesnesis is determined and suggests an accelerated rate of mt genome rearrangements in this brachyuran lineage based on the relative rate of gene rearrangement. Expand
Genome duplication in the teleost fish Tetraodon nigroviridis reveals the early vertebrate proto-karyotype
Genome analysis provides a greatly improved fish gene catalogue, including identifying key genes previously thought to be absent in fish, and reconstructs much of the evolutionary history of ancient and recent chromosome rearrangements leading to the modern human karyotype. Expand
