The complete mitochondrial genome of (Scincidae; Sauria) and its phylogenetic position within Scincidae.

Mitochondrial DNA B Resour 2021 22;6(10):3031-3032. Epub 2021 Sep 22.

Tibet Plateau Institute of Biology, Lhasa, China.

The complete mitochondrial genome of , has been determined for the first time by sanger sequencing. The overall length of the mitogenome is 17,304 bp and contains 13 protein-coding genes, 22 transfer RNA genes, 2 ribosomal RNA genes, and a putative control region. The total base composition is 31.2% for A, 27.0% for T, 14.4% for G, and 27.4% for C. The phylogenetic tree with the whole mitochondrial genome sequence of . together with 10 other related species belonging to the family Scincidae was reconstructed, in order to prove the validity of the mitogenome of . Phylogenetic analysis indicated that was not nested within , and further corroborated this species does not belong to the genus of .

Four complete mitochondrial genomes of living wild-type chinese giant salamander (Amphibia: Cryptobranchidae).

The Chinese giant salamander (CGS), (Amphibian, Caudata, Cryptobranchidae), is endemic to China. After overhunting in the 1990's, it is very difficult to find the CGS in the wild. Due to mating disorder, the captive breeding population is genetically confounded. The genetic backgrounds of all wild-release individuals in China are not explicit. Herein, we reported four living wild-type complete mitochondrial genomes of this species. The gene order and contents are identical to those found in typical vertebrates. Thirteen protein-coding genes (PCGs) of 7 . (4 from this study, 3 retrieved from GenBank) and 11 other closely species retrieved from GenBank were used to reconstruct phylogenetic tree. The Maximum likelihood (ML) topology shown that the clade of CGS has two subclades with a high support (100%). This study provides partial fundamental information for further exploring the true genetic background of whole population of . .

The complete mitochondrial genome of the Xizang hot-spring snake, Wall, 1907 (Reptilia, colubridae).

Mitochondrial DNA B Resour 2016 Dec 9;1(1):921-922. Epub 2016 Dec 9.

College of Life and Environment Sciences, Huangshan University, Huangshan, China.

The Xizang hot-spring snake, (Reptilia, Colubridae), is a relict species of the family Colubridae, which is known only from Tibet, China. In this study, we report the complete mitochondrial genome of this species. The total length of the genome is 17,385 bp, and comprises 13 protein-coding genes, 22 tRNA genes, 2 rRNA genes, and 2 control regions. The total base composition is 32.5% for A, 23.8% for T, 13.5% for G, and 30.2% for C. The phylogenetic tree with 13 protein-coding genes (PCGs) of . together with 12 other closely related species belonging to the family Colubridae was built, in order to prove the validity of the mitogenome of . .

Complete mitochondrial genome of the Xianggelila Hot-spring snake, (Reptilia, Colubridae).

Mitochondrial DNA B Resour 2016 Jul 23;1(1):536-537. Epub 2016 Jul 23.

College of Life and Environment Sciences, Huangshan University, Huangshan, China.

The Xianggelila hot-spring snake, (Reptilia, Colubridae), is a species of family Colubridae, which is seen only in Shangri-La, Northern Yunnan, China. Herein, the complete mitochondrial genome of this species has been reported. The total length of the genome was 17,327 bp, and composed of 13 protein-coding genes, 22 tRNA genes, 2 rRNA genes and 2 control regions. The total base composition was 32.7% for A, 23.7% for T, 13.5% for G and 32.7% for C. The phylogenetic tree with 13 protein-coding genes of . together with 12 other closely related species belonging to the family Colubridae was reconstructed.
