Chloroplasts contain their own autonomously replicating DNA genome. The majority of proteins present in the chloroplasts are encoded by nuclear DNA, but the rest are encoded by chloroplast DNA and synthesized by the chloroplast transcription–translation machinery1–4. Although the nucleotide sequences of many chloroplast genes from various plant species have been determined, the entire gene organization of the chloroplast genome has not yet been elucidated for any species of plants. To improve… 

Complete structure of the chloroplast genome of a legume, Lotus japonicus.

The nucleotide sequence of the entire chloroplast genome of a legume, Lotus japonicus, has been determined and all the predicted genes were conserved among dicot plants except that rpl22, a gene encoding chloroplasts ribosomal protein CL22, was missing in L.Japonicus.

Gene content, organization and molecular evolution of plant organellar genomes and sex chromosomes — Insights from the case of the liverwort Marchantia polymorpha

The findings indicate that the Y and X chromosomes share the same ancestral autosome and support the prediction that in a haploid organism essential genes on sex chromosomes are more likely to persist than in a diploid organism.

Gene organization and newly identified groups of genes of the chloroplast genome from a liverwort, Marchantia polymorpha

The translated amino acid sequences from respective potential protein-coding genes showed 63.9% to 100% sequence similarity to those of the corresponding genes in the chloroplast genome of Nicotiana tabacum, indicating the occurrence of significant diversity in thechloroplast genes between two dicot plants.



Nucleotide sequence of a Euglena gracilis chloroplast genome region coding for the elongation factor Tu; evidence for a spliced mRNA.

A 1.95 kb transcription product of the Euglena gracilis chloroplast DNA fragment Eco-N + Q is characterized by S1 nuclease analysis and DNA sequencing and it is shown that it is the product of three splicing events.

Nucleotide sequence of Marchantia polymorpha chloroplast DNA: a region possibly encoding three tRNAs and three proteins including a homologue of E. coli ribosomal protein S14.

Nucleotide sequences of chloroplast 5S ribosomal RNA from cell suspension cultures of the liverworts Marchantia polymorpha and Jungermannia subulata.

The nucleotide sequences from cell suspension cultures of the liverworts Marchantia polymorpha and Jungermannia subulata were determined and had high homology with those from chloroplast 5S rRNAs of two higher plants and with that from a lower plant, the fern Dryopteris acuminata.

Sequence and organization of the human mitochondrial genome

The complete sequence of the 16,569-base pair human mitochondrial genome is presented and shows extreme economy in that the genes have none or only a few noncoding bases between them, and in many cases the termination codons are not coded in the DNA but are created post-transcriptionally by polyadenylation of the mRNAs.
