The complete mitogenome sequence of Tylototriton ziegleri (Amphibia: Caudata)

The complete mitogenome sequence of Tylototriton ziegleri (Amphibia: Caudata) Tylototriton ziegleri is distributed in northern Vietnam and is a new member of the genus Tylototriton. The conservation status of this species has not yet been assessed by the IUCN, but several other species of Tylototriton have been listed as near threatened or vulnerable due to habitat destruction and illegal hunting. We determined the complete sequence and structural characteristics of the mitochondrial genome of T. ziegleri. The entire mitogenome is 16,266 bp in length, and contains 13 protein-coding genes, 22 tRNA genes, two rRNA genes, a control region, and a non-coding region. The length, gene arrangement, and composition are similar to mitogenomes of other species of Tylototriton. A phylogenetic tree based on the mitogenome sequences of several Asian species within Salamandridae confirmed the genus Tylototriton as monophyletic, with T. ziegleri being the sister species of T. asperrimus and both constituting the sister group of T. wenxianensis. This work provides basic molecular data which are critical for further genetic research and conservation of the genus Tylototriton. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Conservation Genetics Resources Springer Journals

Abstract

Tylototriton ziegleri is distributed in northern Vietnam and is a new member of the genus Tylototriton. The conservation status of this species has not yet been assessed by the IUCN, but several other species of Tylototriton have been listed as near threatened or vulnerable due to habitat destruction and illegal hunting. We determined the complete sequence and structural characteristics of the mitochondrial genome of T. ziegleri. The entire mitogenome is 16,266 bp in length, and contains 13 protein-coding genes, 22 tRNA genes, two rRNA genes, a control region, and a non-coding region. The length, gene arrangement, and composition are similar to mitogenomes of other species of Tylototriton. A phylogenetic tree based on the mitogenome sequences of several Asian species within Salamandridae confirmed the genus Tylototriton as monophyletic, with T. ziegleri being the sister species of T. asperrimus and both constituting the sister group of T. wenxianensis. This work provides basic molecular data which are critical for further genetic research and conservation of the genus Tylototriton.
