Complete mtDNA Sequences of Two Millipedes Suggest a New Model for Mitochondrial Gene Rearrangements: Duplication and Nonrandom Loss
Molecular biology and evolution
We determined the complete mtDNA sequences of the millipedes Narceus annularus and Thyropygus sp. (Arthropoda: Diplopoda) and identified in both genomes all 37 genes typical for metazoan mtDNA. The arrangement of these genes is identical in the two millipedes, but differs from that inferred to be ancestral for arthropods by the location of four genes/gene clusters. This novel gene arrangement is unusual for animal mtDNA, in that genes with opposite transcriptional polarities are clustered indoi:10.1093/oxfordjournals.molbev.a004068 pmid:11801744 fatcat:m3grjbynbzc2hkx6mnbennotte
