Abstract

In this study, the complete mitogenome sequence of balitorid loach Plesiomyzon baotingensis Zheng & Chen, 1980 which was collected from Hainan island, China, has been sequenced by the long polymerase chain reaction method. The mitogenome, consisting of 16,541 base pairs (bp), had typical vertebrate mitochondrial gene arrangement, including 13 protein coding genes, 22 transfer RNAs, 2 ribosomal RNA genes and a noncoding control region (CR). CR of 877 bp length is located between tRNAPro and tRNAPhe. The overall base composition of Plesiomyzon baotingensis is 29.6% for A, 28.5% for C, 25.0% for T and 16.9% for G, with a slight AT bias of 54.6%. The complete mitochondrial genome may provide rather informative data for reconstructing and addressing new molecular perspectives for balitorid phylogenies.
