Genome structure and gene content in protist mitochondrial DNAs.
Although the collection of completely sequenced mitochondrial genomes is expanding rapidly, only recently has a phylogenetically broad representation of mtDNA sequences from protists (mostlyExpand

Complete sequence of the mitochondrial DNA of the chlorophyte alga Prototheca wickerhamii. Gene content and genome organization.
The complete nucleotide sequence of the circular mitochondrial (mt) DNA of the chlorophyte alga Prototheca wickerhamii has been determined (55,328 base-pairs, A+T content 74.2%). The genes identifiedExpand

The Complete Mitochondrial DNA Sequences of Nephroselmis olivacea and Pedinomonas minor: Two Radically Different Evolutionary Patterns within Green Algae
Green plants appear to comprise two sister lineages, Chlorophyta (classes Chlorophyceae, Ulvophyceae, Trebouxiophyceae, and Prasinophyceae) and Streptophyta (Charophyceae and Embryophyta, or landExpand

A comparison of three fission yeast mitochondrial genomes.
The fission yeasts are members of the fungal order Schizosaccharomycetales, a candidate deep-diverging group within Ascomycota. Although a great deal of molecular information is available fromExpand

Comparative mitochondrial genomics in zygomycetes: bacteria-like RNase P RNAs, mobile elements and a close source of the group I intron invasion in angiosperms
To generate data for comparative analyses of zygomycete mitochondrial gene expression, we sequenced mtDNAs of three distantly related zygomycetes, Rhizopus oryzae, Mortierella verticillata andExpand

nirA, the pathway-specific regulatory gene of nitrate assimilation in Aspergillus nidulans, encodes a putative GAL4-type zinc finger protein and contains four introns in highly conserved regions.
The nucleotide sequence of nirA, mediating nitrate induction in Aspergillus nidulans, has been determined. Alignment of the cDNA and the genomic DNA sequence indicates that the gene contains fourExpand

The Rhodomonas salina mitochondrial genome: bacteria-like operons, compact gene arrangement and complex repeat region
To gain insight into the mitochondrial genome structure and gene content of a putatively ancestral group of eukaryotes, the cryptophytes, we sequenced the complete mitochondrial DNA of RhodomonasExpand

Evolution of monoblepharidalean fungi based on complete mitochondrial genome sequences.
We have determined the complete mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) sequences of three chytridiomycete fungi, Monoblepharella15, Harpochytrium94 and Harpochytrium105. Our phylogenetic analysis based onExpand

Natural reassignment of CUU and CUA sense codons to alanine in Ashbya mitochondria
The discovery of diverse codon reassignment events has demonstrated that the canonical genetic code is not universal. Studying coding reassignment at the molecular level is critical for understandingExpand
