Mitochondrial genome of Japanese angel shark Squatina japonica (Chondrichthyes: Squatinidae)



Mitochondrial genome of Japanese angel shark Squatina japonica (Chondrichthyes: Squatinidae)



Mitochondrial Dna. Part A Dna Mapping Sequencing and Analysis 27(2): 832-833



Squatina japonica belonging to the monogenetic family Squatinidae is endemic to the Northwest Pacific. The complete mitochondrial genome sequence of S. japonica is 16,689 bp long and comprises 13 protein-coding genes, 22 tRNA genes, 2 rRNA genes, and 1 control region. The base composition of the genome is 31.10% A, 31.04% T, 24.42% C, and 13.43% G. The geographic clade and phylogenetic relationship of S. japonica are ambiguous. Therefore, studying the complete mitochondrial genome of S. japonica is highly important to understand the aforementioned aspect and to analyze the conservation genetics in the genus Squatina.
