    Abstract

    In this manuscript we describe the first complete mitochondrial sequence for the Data Deficient Pigeye Shark Carcharhinus amboinensis. The mitogenome is 16,704 bp long and consists of 1 control region, 2 rRNA genes, 22 tRNA genes and 13 protein-coding genes with an overall base composition of 31.6% A, 24.9% C, 13.1% G and 30.4% T. The gene arrangement pattern and transcriptional direction were typical for a vertebrate species. The tRNA-Ser2 lacks the dihydrouridine arm and forms a simple loop, therefore it cannot be folded into the typical cloverleaf secondary structures like other tRNAs.
