Alignment and Phylogenetic Analysis: Sequenced samples were compared with published sequences of Bos taurus and Ovis aries by using Codon Code Aligner (www.
The BLAST alignment results revealed that 153 bp long nucleotide sequence of buffalo's ZFX exon 5 gene was homogenous to that of Bos taurus (NC007331) and Ovis aries ZFX exon 5 genes (NC019484) with a percentage similarity of 99%.
The 3', 5'RACE and full length sequences were 560 bp (3'ends), 500 bp (5'ends) and 642 bp (ISG15 cDNA) respectively (data not shown), each having 99% identity to Ovis aries mRNA.
3% identity with those of ISG15 cDNA from Ovis aries (accession no.
It is concluded that complete mitochondrial Cyt- b gene and D-loop sequence analysis in Mareecha and Bareela breed confirmed its genetic makeup as dromedary camels that are closer to other reported dromedary camels and they are well distanced from Bactrian camels however Ovis aries showed higher similarity as compared to Capra hircus, Bos taurus, Bos indicus, Bubalus bubalis.
First of all, these sequences were mapped to the Ovis aries genome using SOAP v1.
After removal of low quality reads and adapter contaminants, 21,950,988 base sequences were perfectly mapped to Ovis aries genome, 2,673,840 reads were unannotated and remained for further novel miRNA candidates analysis (Table 1).
