The complete nucleotide sequence of the mitochondrial (mt) genome of the demersal zebra seabream Diplodus cervinus (Lowe, 1838) was determined for the first time. The double stranded circular molecule is 16,559 base pairs (bp) in length and encodes for the typical 37 metazoan mitochondrial genes, and 2 non-coding regions (D-loop and L-origin). The gene arrangement of the D. cervinus mt genome follows the usual one for fishes. The nucleotide sequences of the mt protein coding and ribosomal genes of D. cervinus mt genome were aligned with orthologous sequences from representatives of the Sparidae family and phylogenetic relationships were inferred. Maximum likelihood analyses placed D. cervinus as a sister species of Diplodus sargus (Linnaeus, 1758).

Abstract

The complete nucleotide sequence of the mitochondrial (mt) genome of the demersal zebra seabream Diplodus cervinus (Lowe, 1838) was determined for the first time. The double stranded circular molecule is 16,559 base pairs (bp) in length and encodes for the typical 37 metazoan mitochondrial genes, and 2 non-coding regions (D-loop and L-origin). The gene arrangement of the D. cervinus mt genome follows the usual one for fishes. The nucleotide sequences of the mt protein coding and ribosomal genes of D. cervinus mt genome were aligned with orthologous sequences from representatives of the Sparidae family and phylogenetic relationships were inferred. Maximum likelihood analyses placed D. cervinus as a sister species of Diplodus sargus (Linnaeus, 1758).
