The main objective of the study was to assess the genetic variations in mitochondrial cytochrome b gene, mitochondrial cytochrome c gene and mitochondrial d-loop region in Axis porcinus of Pakistan.
Polymorphisms were identified in cytochrome b, cytochrome c gene and d-loopregion (Table IV).
DNA sequences of cytochrome b, cytochrome c andd-loopregion (combined sequence) of animals under study were routed for phylogenetic analyses.
In Axis porcinus, 1139 bp fragment sequenced of mitochondrial cytochrome b gene was analysed.

Hans Zischler of the University of Munich in Germany had identified pieces of the cytochrome b gene in the human nuclear genome and suggested that these nuclear inserts had contaminated Woodward's analyses of the dinosaur bone.
But the cytochrome b fragments were too short to offer meaningful phylogenetic information, says Woodward.
they speculate that gamma interferon enhances cytochrome b and additional genes.
