Abstract
The complete mitochondrial genome of the Korean skate, Hongeo koreana (Jeong & Nakabo 1997), the sole member of its genus, is investigated for the first time. The genome consists of 16,906 bp in length including 2 rRNA, 22 tRNA and 13 protein coding genes with the same gene order and structure of the genome as those of other Rajidae species. The overall nucleotide composition of the L-strand is A = 29.8%, C = 27.9%, T = 27.9%, and G = 14.3%, showing a high A+T bias. The anti-G bias (6.0%) is more significant in the third codon position. Twelve of the 13 protein-coding genes use ATG as their start codon while the COX1 gene starts with GTG. For stop codon, ND3 and ND4 genes show incomplete stop codon T. The mitogenome sequence of H. koreana will provide important information on the evolution and the phylogenetic relation of the genus Hongeo in relation to the other genera of the family Rajidae.rotein coding genes with the same gene order and structure of the genome as those of other Rajidae species.
