Complete mitochondrial genome of Labeo rohita.Mitochondrial DNA. 2012 Dec; 23(6):441-3.MD
The complete mitochondrial genome of Labeo rohita, an important cultivable fish, was determined for the first time. The genome is 16,611 bp in length and consists of 13 protein-coding genes, 22 tRNA genes, 2 rRNA genes, and one control region. The gene organisation and its order were similar to other vertebrates. The overall base composition on heavy strand was as follows A: 32.5%, G: 15.2%, C: 27.7%, T: 24.47%, and the A+T content 56.9%. The control region contains a microsatellite, (TA)(12), a putative termination-associated sequence and three conserved sequence blocks. This mitogenome sequence data would play an important role in population genetics and phylogenetics of Indian major carps.
