In this manuscript we describe the first complete mitochondrial sequence for the Near
Threatened Graceful Shark Carcharhinus amblyrhynchoides. It is 16,705 bp in length, consists of
two rRNA genes, 22 tRNA genes, 13 protein-coding genes and one control region with the
typical gene arrangement pattern and translate orientation in vertebrates. The overall base
composition is 31.4% A, 25.1% C, 13.2% G and 30.3% T. The shortest tRNA-Ser2 cannot fold into
a clover-leaf secondary structure due to the lack of the dihydrouridine arm.
