Diversity of Mitochondrial DNA Cytochrome b Gene in Roe Deer (Capreolus pygargus tianschanicus Satunin) from Jejudo Island, Korea

한국의 제주도에 서식하고 있는 노루(Capreolus pygargus tuanschanicus Satunin)의 미토콘드리아 DNA cytochrome b 유전자의 다양성

As one of researches to clarify the taxonomic status of roe deer from Jeju island (C. pygargus tianschanicus), we analyzed partial sequences of mtDNA cytochrome b gene from six roe deers at Jeju island in Korea. Maximum nucleotide Tamura & Nei's distance among three haplotypes was 0.005, and this distance was comparable to the diversity within other roe deer subspecies: it is suggested that roe deers from the mainland dispersed rarely to Jejudo Island, although further analyses are ne-cessary to decide whether or not it was occurred by human introduction. Furthermore, nucleotide distance between cytochrome b sequences of roe deers from Jeju (C. pygargus tianschanicus) and the sequence of roe deer from west Siberia(C. p. pygargus), obtained from GenBank, was average 0.013, and it is suggested that C. p. tianschanicus diverged from C. p. pygargus of west Siberia 0.65 Myr ago.
