The complete mitochondrial genome of Budorcas taxicolor bedfordi (Artiodactyla: Bovidae) and phylogenetic studies of Caprinae

The complete mitochondrial genome of Budorcas taxicolor bedfordi (Artiodactyla: Bovidae) and... Budorcas taxicolor bedfordi is uniquely distributed in Qinling Mountains in China. It is classified as vulnerable under International Union for the Conservation of Nature and is a first-class national protected animal in China. Here, the complete mitogenome of B. t. bedfordi was described, which is 16,660 bp in length, containing 13 protein-coding genes, two rRNA genes, 22 tRNA genes, one origin of replication on the light-strand and a putative control region. Most of the protein-coding genes use the initiation codon ATG except ATP6 uses ATT, ND2, ND3 and ND5 use ATA, which is quite uncommon in vertebrate mtDNA. Most of them have TAA or TAG as the stop codon, except ND6 and Cytb use AGA, COIII, ND3 and ND4 use an incomplete stop codon TA or T.

Abstract

Budorcas taxicolor bedfordi is uniquely distributed in Qinling Mountains in China. It is classified as vulnerable under International Union for the Conservation of Nature and is a first-class national protected animal in China. Here, the complete mitogenome of B. t. bedfordi was described, which is 16,660 bp in length, containing 13 protein-coding genes, two rRNA genes, 22 tRNA genes, one origin of replication on the light-strand and a putative control region. Most of the protein-coding genes use the initiation codon ATG except ATP6 uses ATT, ND2, ND3 and ND5 use ATA, which is quite uncommon in vertebrate mtDNA. Most of them have TAA or TAG as the stop codon, except ND6 and Cytb use AGA, COIII, ND3 and ND4 use an incomplete stop codon TA or T. A phylogenetic tree involving 18 Caprinae species was constructed, which will contribute to phylogenetic studies of Bovidae and further conservation strategies for this species.
