* The complete mitochondrial genome of the larvae Japanese anchovy Engraulis japonicus (Clupeiformes, Engraulidae).
- The complete mitochondrial genome of the larvae Japanese anchovy Engraulis japonicus collected from Yangtze estuary was determined by next-generation sequencing. The mitogenome is a circular molecule16,675 bp in length, including the typical structure of 13 protein-coding genes, 2 ribosomal RNA genes, 22 transfer RNA genes and a control region. The TAS, central CSB and CSB were detected in the control region. The gene contents of the mitogenome are identical to those observed in most bony fishes.
