Mitochondrial DNA | Year: 2014

Muscovy duck (Cairina moschata) is the most popular meat duck, and it can be crossed with most breeds of domestic ducks in captivity to produce sterile hybrids. In this study, complete mitochondrial genome of the Muscovy duck was sequenced by long and accurate polymerase chain reaction (LA-PCR) as well as the primer walking sequence method. The entire mitochondrial genome of Muscovy duck was 16,610 bp in length, gene composition and arrangement conformed to most bird, which contained the typical structure of 22 tRNAs, 2 rRNAs, 13 protein-coding genes and a non-coding region. The characteristic of the mitochondrial genome was analyzed in detail. Our complete mitochondrial genome sequence will be useful for phylogenetics, and be available as basic data for the breeding and genetics. © 2014 Informa UK Ltd. Source

Mitochondrial DNA | Year: 2016

The complete mitochondrial genome (mtDNA) of Peking duck (Anas platyrhychos) was determined. The entire genome was 16,604 bp in length. Similar to the typical mtDNA of vertebrates, it contained 37 genes (13 protein-coding genes, 2 rRNA genes, 22 tRNA genes) and a non-coding region (D-loop). The characteristics of the mitochondrial genome was analyzed and discussed in detail. © 2014 Informa UK Ltd. Source
