Abstract:In a variety of animal species, DNA barcoding based on mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit Ⅰ (COⅠ) gene is an efficient tool for species identification. However, the presence of large mitochondrial pseudogenes in felids may affect the effectiveness of DNA barcoding. In this study, 119 felid samples from 25 species of 12 genera were analyzed.3 pairs of universal primers were used to amplify and sequence the COⅠ genes of 29 felid samples that belonged to 11 species from 6 genera. The results showed that the amplification was failed in 3 samples, nuclear mitochondrial psedogenes (numts) were obtained in 8 samples, and barcode sequences were derived in 18 samples. Combined with the other 93 felid barcode sequences (derived from BOLD Systems), Kimura 2-parameter model was used to calculate the genetic distance and to construct Neighbor-Joining (NJ) tree. The genetic distance within species were 0%-8.1%, with an average of 0.8%; the interspecific genetic distance were 1.4%-13.1%, with an average of 8.7%; and the genetic distance within family were 8.2%-21.8%, with an average of about 15.1%. The NJ tree showed that most of the species formed a monophyletic clade with high confidence (99%), except 3 species; some of the numts sequences could form a clade on NJ tree, and the others were inserted in the branches of the COⅠ sequences, which may compromise the species identification.
