Characterization of the complete mitochondrial genome of the Northern Mud Gudgeon, Ophiocara porocephala (Perciformes: Eleotridae) with phylogenetic implications

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The first mitochondrial genome of Ophiocara porocephala was determined by the combination of next-generation sequencing (NGS) and Sanger sequencing methods. A complete circular mitogenome of O. porocephala (16,529 bp) consisted of 13 protein-coding genes, 22 transfer RNAs, two ribosomal RNAs, and two non-coding regions, including a control region (D-loop) and a light strand origin of replication (OL). Two start codons (ATG and GTG) and four stop codons (TAG, TAA, TA–, and T–) were used in all the PCGs. Except for ND6 and eight transfer RNAs (tRNAs), all the other genes were encoded in the heavy strand. Based on phylogenetic analysis, O. porocephala formed a clade with three other species in the subfamily Butinae, while the other 10 made a subfamily Eleotrinae clade.
