  author={Zhi-Teng Chen and Yu-Zhou Du},
  journal={International Journal of Molecular Sciences},
The complete mitochondrial genome (mitogenome) of Nemoura nankinensis (Plecoptera: Nemouridae) was sequenced as the first reported mitogenome from the family Nemouridae. The N. nankinensis mitogenome was the longest (16,602 bp) among reported plecopteran mitogenomes, and it contains 37 genes including 13 protein-coding genes (PCGs), 22 transfer RNA (tRNA) genes and two ribosomal RNA (rRNA) genes. Most PCGs used standard ATN as start codons, and TAN as termination codons. All tRNA genes of N…

The first two mitochondrial genomes from Taeniopterygidae (Insecta: Plecoptera): Structural features and phylogenetic implications.
Complete Mitochondrial Genome of Malenka flexura (Plecoptera: Nemouridae) and Phylogenetic Analysis
The genus-level relationships within the subfamily Amphinemurinae have been controversial, although attempts have been made based on morphology and limited molecular data, and the phylogenetic analyses inferred a relationship within Amphinemuinae: Amphinemura + Malenka + (Protonemura + (Indonemoura + (SphaeronemOUra + Mesonemura)))).
Molecular phylogeny inferred from the mitochondrial genomes of Plecoptera with Oyamia nigribasis (Plecoptera: Perlidae)
Phylogenetic analyses using Bayesian inference and maximum likelihood were undertaken to determine relationships between stoneflies and indicated that the Antarctoperlaria, which contains Gripopterygidae, was absolutely separated from Arctoper laria; this finding agrees with morphology.
Mitochondrial genomes of the stoneflies Mesonemourametafiligera and Mesonemouratritaenia (Plecoptera, Nemouridae), with a phylogenetic analysis of Nemouroidea
Results show that gene content, gene arrangement, base composition, and codon usage were highly conserved in two species of nemourids and that all these genes were evolving under purifying selection.
Comparative mitogenomic analysis of two earwigs (Insecta, Dermaptera) and the preliminary phylogenetic implications
Comparative analysis of available earwig mitogenomes revealed variable mitogenomic structure and extensive gene rearrangements in Dermaptera, causing an apparent incongruence with previous phylogenetic studies.
Comparative analysis of the Liriomyza chinensis mitochondrial genome with other Agromyzids reveals conserved genome features
Analysis by maximum likelihood, Bayesian inference and genetic distance suggest congruent phylogenetic relationships in Liriomyza spp.
Mitochondrial Genome of Strophopteryx fasciata (Plecoptera: Taeniopterygidae), with a Phylogenetic Analysis of Nemouroidea
The Strophopteryx fasciata mitogenome was sequenced and analyzed and two phylogenetic trees were inferred from Bayesian inference (BI) and Maximum Likelihood (ML) methods generated the identical topology across the PCGR dataset.
The complete mitochondrial genome sequence of Scolopendra mutilans L. Koch, 1878 (Scolopendromorpha, Scolopendridae), with a comparative analysis of other centipede genomes
The complete mitochondrial genome (mitogenome) of S. mutilans was sequenced and assembled by next-generation sequencing and provided new genomic resources, which will improve its medicinal research and applications in the future.


The complete mitochondrial genome of the styloperlid stonefly species Styloperla spinicercia Wu (Insecta: Plecoptera) with family-level phylogenetic analyses of the Pteronarcyoidea.
Phylogenetic analyses using both Bayesian (BI) and Maximum Likelihood (ML) methods support the previous hypotheses regarding family level relationships within the Pteronarcyoidea.
Insect mitochondrial genomics 2: The complete mitochondrial genome sequence of a giant stonefly, Pteronarcys princeps, asymmetric directional mutation bias, and conserved plecopteran A+T-region elements.
This work presents the complete mt-genome sequence of a giant stonefly, Pteronarcys princeps (Plecoptera); the 16,004 bp genome is typical in its genome content, gene organisation, and nucleotide composition, and shows evidence of strand-specific mutational biases.
Characterization of mitochondrial control region, two intergenic spacers and tRNAs of Zaprionus indianus (Diptera: Drosophilidae)
The mtDNA control region, two intergenic spacers and tRNA genes of a Zaprionus indianus strain were cloned, sequenced and compared with other Drosophila species, and it was demonstrated that the most conserved region appears to be the 420 base pairs nearest to the tRNAile.
The complete mitochondrial genome of the stonefly Dinocras cephalotes (Plecoptera, Perlidae)
Abstract The complete mitochondrial genome of the perlid stonefly Dinocras cephalotes (Curtis, 1827) was sequenced using a combined 454 and Sanger sequencing approach using the known sequence of
Platyhelminth mitochondrial DNA: Evidence for early evolutionary origin of a tRNAserAGN that contains a dihydrouridine arm replacement loop, and of serine-specifying AGA and AGG codons
Findings concerning F. hepatica mtDNA indicate that both a dihydrouridine arm replacement loop-containing tRNAserAGN gene and the use of AGA and AGG codons to specify serine must first have occurred very early in, or before, the evolution of metazoa.
Insect mitochondrial genomics 3: the complete mitochondrial genome sequences of representatives from two neuropteroid orders: a dobsonfly (order Megaloptera) and a giant lacewing and an owlfly (order Neuroptera).
The complete mitochondrial genomes from representatives of two orders of the Neuropterida are described and a transposition of two tRNA genes, tRNATrp and tRNACys, shows that the rearrangement is widespread in the order Neuroptera but not present in either of the other two Orders of neuropterida.
