We describe the complete mitochondrial genome of the house centipede Scutigera coleoptrata. Its gene order is unique among characterized arthropod mitochondrial genomes. Comparison to the gene order in the horseshoe crab mtDNA implies 10 or more translocations. By extending comparisons to 30 arthropod mitochondrial genomes plus two outgroups, we identify two different patterns of gene order change. The first, only affecting position and orientation of tRNAs, is much more frequent than the… CONTINUE READING
