Polyphyletic Origins of Schizothoracinae Fishes (Cyprinidae) in Respect to Their Mitochondrial Protein-Coding Genes

Saira Bibi*, Muhammad Fiaz Khan, Aqsa Rehman and Faisal Nouroz

Whole mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) S. plagiostomus was 16569bp with 2 rRNAs genes, 22 tRNA genes,13 proteincoding genes, and 2 non-coding region. For estimating association of phylogenetic of a species based on Protein coding mitochondrial DNA genes are measured to be a great value. We sequenced protein-coding genes of Schizothorax plagiostomus in present study, based upon these genes we compared with S. plagiostomus the 48 Schizothoracinae fishes by phylogenetic association. We analysed that S. plagiostomus to be closely related with Schizopyge niger, Schizothorax labiatus, Schizothorax nepalensis with high-bootstraps values. For understanding phylogenetic relationship of Schizothorax species such empirical data would be important.
