The complete mitochondrial genome sequence of White-collared Yuhina (Yuhina diademata)

Published online: 07 Dec 2015


We sequenced the complete mitochondrial DNA genome of Yuhina diademata by means of polymerase chain reaction. The circle genome (17 834 bp in length) contained 13 protein-coding genes (PCGs), 2 rRNA genes, 22 tRNA genes, and 2 control regions (Dloop1 and Dloop2), which was similar to the other published mitogenome of Timaliidae species.

Most PCGs began with ATG, while COI and ND2 genes started with GTG. Nine of the PCGs used complete (TAA) or incomplete (TA– or T––) stop codon, while ND1 and ND6 genes ended with AGA, COI gene ended with AGG, and ND6 gene with TAG. Overall base composition of the complete mtDNA was 30.30% A, 23.81% T, 31.72% C, and 14.17% G. All the PCGs in Y. diademata were distributed on the H-strand, except for the ND6 gene and eight tRNA genes which were encoded on the L-strand.
