Abstract

The complete mitochondrial genomes were sequenced in two individuals of Siberian taimen Hucho taimen. The sizes of the genomes were 16,833 and 16,914 in the two isolates, representing two haplotype groups previously detected. The gene arrangement, base composition, and size of the two sequenced genomes are very similar to the H. taimen genome previously published (HQ897271), but did not contain introgressed fragments from two subspecies of lenok, Brachymystax lenok and B. l. tsinlingensis.
