Inverted replication of vertebrate mitochondria.


After analyzing the base composition asymmetry of coding regions in vertebrate mitochondria, we identified 2 fishes, Albula glossodonta and Bathygadus antrodes, with inverted compositional patterns. Both species appear to have an unusual control region (CR), and in B. antrodes, it has switched from the light strand to the heavy strand. To our knowledge… (More)
