Abstract

The complete mitochondrial genome of Assamese macaques (Macaca assamensis) was sequenced in this study. The genome is 16,542 bp long, consisting of 13 protein-coding genes (PCGs), 2 ribosomal RNA genes, 22 transfer RNA genes and 2 non-coding areas. Eight PCGs (COI, COII, ATP6, COIII, ND4L, ND4, ND6, CYTB) initiate with the start codon ATG and another two genes (ND1, ATP8) use GTG, while ND2, ND3 and ND5 start with ATT, ATC and ATA, respectively. Five genes (COII, ATP8, ATP6, ND4L and ND5) use the complete stop codon TAA, whereas four genes have incomplete stop codons, TA- (COIII) and T-‚ÄČ- (ND3, ND4, CYTB), while others use standard canonical TAA as their termination codons. The largest non-coding control region with the length of 1091 bp is located between the tRNA-Pro and tRNA-Phe genes.
