Evolution of DNA sequence organization in mitochondrial genomes of Zea.

Abstract

Molecular mechanisms underlying the evolution of mtDNA in maize and three species of teosinte have been investigated. By using DNA transfer techniques and cloned fragments of maize mtDNA, changes in the position of homologous sequences in restriction digests were analyzed in related taxa. The resulting patterns indicate general conservation of sequence… (More)
