We have determined the nucleotide sequence of the entire mitochondrial control region (CR) of the Adélie penguin (Pygoscelis adeliae) from Antarctica. Like in most other birds, this CR region is flanked by the gene nad6 and transfer (t)RNA trnE(uuc) at the 5' end and the gene rns and trnF(gaa) at the 3' end. Sequence analysis shows that the Adelie penguin CR contains many elements in common with other CRs including the termination associated sequences (TAS), conserved F, E, D, and C boxes, the… CONTINUE READING
