The mitochondrial (mt) genomes of Fusarium verticillioides, Fusarium solani and Fusarium graminearum were annotated and found to be 53.7, 63.0 and 95.7 kb in length, respectively. The genomes encode all genes typically associated with mtDNAs of filamentous fungi yet are considerably larger than the mt genome of F. oxysporum. Size differences are largely due to the number of group I introns. Surprisingly, the genomes contain a highly variable region of 7-9 kb that encodes an exceptionally large… CONTINUE READING
