ABSTRACT

The sequencing of the complete mitochondrial (mt) genome of the pet bamboo rat Rhizomys pruinosus, which had a problem in standing and walking in a Bamboo farm in Wenzhou, China was carried out, using its tibia. The mt genome (16,579 bp) is composed of 13 protein coding genes, 22 tRNA genes and 2 rRNA genes. The ratio of the bases of the mt genome of R. pruinosus from Wenzhou are A (32.31%), T (31.04%), C (24.77%), G (11.88%), A+T (63.35%), respectively. The multivariable sites in rRNA were 1.98% and 5.53% in 12S rRNA and 16S rRNA, respectively. The multivariable sites in protein coding gene were ranged from 0 to 4.83%, while the multivariable sites in amino acids were ranged from 0 to 5.22%. The current results contributes to the perform prevention of leg problems in the bamboo rat industry.
