The complete mitochondrial genome sequence of the hydrothermal vent galatheid crab Shinkaia crosnieri (Crustacea: Decapoda: Anomura): A novel arrangement and incomplete tRNA suite
The mitochondrial genetic characteristics of decapods are sustained in this case of S. crosnieri despite the absence of several tRNAs and a number of dramatic rearrangements, which may provide evidence for the immigrating hypothesis about how vent species originate.
Complete mitochondrial genome of the Asian paddle crab Charybdis japonica (Crustacea: Decapoda: Portunidae): gene rearrangement of the marine brachyurans and phylogenetic considerations of the decapods
Phylogenetic analyses using the concatenated nucleotide and amino acid sequences of 13 protein-coding genes strongly support the monophyly of Dendrobranchiata and Pleocyemata, which is consistent with the previous taxonomic classification, but the systematic status of Charybdis within subfamily Thalamitinae of family Portunidae is not supported.
The complete mitochondrial genome of the common sea slater, Ligia oceanica (Crustacea, Isopoda) bears a novel gene order and unusual control region features
Gene order is not conserved among Peracarida, not even among isopods, and the first complete mitochondrial DNA sequence from a peracarid crustacean is revealed.
Mitochondrial DNA Sequence and Gene Organization in the Australian Blacklip Abalone Haliotis rubra (Leach)
The complete mitochondrial DNA of the blacklip abalone Haliotis rubra was cloned and 16,907 base pairs were sequenced, and sequences from the ATP8, NAD2, NAD4L, NAD6, and 12S rRNA genes, as well as the control region, are the most variable among representatives from Mollusca, Arthropoda, and Rhynchonelliformea.
Complete Mitochondrial DNA Sequences of the Decapod Crustaceans Pseudocarcinus gigas (Menippidae) and Macrobrachium rosenbergii (Palaemonidae)
The complete mitochondrial DNA sequence was determined for the Australian giant crab Pseudocarcinns gigas and the giant freshwater shrimp Macrobrachium rosenbergii, the first caridean and only the second brachyuran complete mtDNA sequences, and a source of information that will facilitate surveys of intraspecific variation within these commercially important decapod species.


The complete sequence of the mitochondrial genome of Daphnia pulex (Cladocera: Crustacea).
The highly rearranged mitochondrial genome of the plague thrips, Thrips imaginis (Insecta: Thysanoptera): convergence of two novel gene boundaries and an extraordinary arrangement of rRNA genes.
The potential of hemipteroid insects as a model system for studies of the evolution of animal mt genomes is discussed and some fundamental questions that may be addressed with this system are outlined.
The complete sequence of the mitochondrial genome of the crustacean Penaeus monodon: are malacostracan crustaceans more closely related to insects than to branchiopods?
Analysis of the effect of nucleotide bias on codon composition across the Arthropoda reveals a trend with the crustaceans represented showing the lowest proportion of AT-rich codons in mitochondrial protein genes, supporting the possibility that Crustacea are paraphyletic.
The complete nucleotide sequence of a snake (Dinodon semicarinatus) mitochondrial genome with two identical control regions.
Southern hybridization experiments using mtDNAs purified from multiple akamata individuals showed that the duplicate state of the control region is not a transient or unstable feature found in a particular individual, but that it stably occurs in mitochondrial genomes of the species.
Novel rearrangements of arthropod mitochondrial DNA detected with long-PCR: applications to arthropod phylogeny and evolution.
Three new arthropod mtDNA gene arrangements were discovered in a terrestrial crustacean and two myriapods and include major realignments of some of the large coding regions and two possible new positions for the tRNA(Met) (M) gene in arthropods.
The complete mitochondrial DNA sequence of the crustacean Artemia franciscana
The complete mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) sequence of the brine shrimp Artemia franciscana has been determined. It extends the present knowledge of mitochondrial genomes to the crustacean class and
Complete mitochondrial DNA of the hagfish, Eptatretus burgeri: the comparative analysis of mitochondrial DNA sequences strongly supports the cyclostome monophyly.
Molecular data, i.e., results and those obtained using nuclear genes, conclude that hagfishes and lampreys form a clade, and unequivocally supported the monophyly of cyclostomes.
