Comparative genomics among gymnosperms suggested extensive loss of mitochondrial RNA editing sites from Welwitschia mirabilis based on predictive analysis. However, empirical or transcriptome data to confirm this massive loss event are lacking, and the potential mechanisms of RNA site loss are unclear. By comparing genomic sequences with transcriptomic and reverse-transcription PCR sequencing data, we performed a comprehensive analysis of the pattern of RNA editing in the mitochondrial and… Expand
