The complete nucleotide sequence of the urochordate Ciona savignyi (Ascidiacea, Enterogona) mitochondrial (mt) genome (14,737 bp) was determined. The Ciona mt genome does not encode a gene for ATP synthetase subunit 8 but encodes an additional tRNAGly gene (anticodon UCU), as is the case in another urochordate, Halocynthia roretzi (Ascidiacea, Pleurogona), mt genome. In addition, the Ciona mt genome encodes two tRNAMet genes; anticodon CAT and anticodon TAT. The tRNACys gene is thought to lack… Expand
Evolution of the Mitochondrial Genome in Cephalochordata as Inferred from Complete Nucleotide Sequences from Two Epigonichthys Species
TLDR
The present analysis suggested that AGR codons in lancelet mtDNA were likely to correspond to serine residue, rather than glycine, and lends support to an alternative hypothesis regarding the evolutionary history of AGR-codon assignment in extant chordates rather than that previously proposed. Expand
The mitochondrial genome of Phallusia mammillata and Phallusia fumigata (Tunicata, Ascidiacea): high genome plasticity at intra-genus level
TLDR
The frequent occurrence of major gene order rearrangements in ascidians both at high taxonomic level and within the same genus makes this taxon an excellent model to study the mechanisms of gene rearrangement, and renders the mt genome an invaluable phylogenetic marker to investigate molecular biodiversity and speciation events in this largely unexplored group of basal chordates. Expand
Long-term conservation of six duplicated structural genes in cephalopod mitochondrial genomes.
TLDR
Molecular phylogenetic analyses of mt protein genes are suggestive, although not statistically significantly so, of a monophyletic relationship between W. scintillans and T. pacificus. Expand
Mitochondrial genome of Trichoplax adhaerens supports placozoa as the basal lower metazoan phylum.
TLDR
The Trichoplax mtDNA has characteristics of the mitochondrial genomes of known metazoan outgroups, such as chytrid fungi and choanoflagellates, but, more importantly, it shares derived features unique to the Metazoa. Expand
Complete nucleotide sequence of the mitochondrial genome of Doliolum nationalis with implications for evolution of urochordates.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses of the amino acid sequences of 12 protein-coding genes strongly support the sister-grouping of doliolids and the Phlebobranch ascidian Ciona, thereby providing strong support for the paraphyly of ascidians, as has been suggested by 18S rDNA studies. Expand
Hypervariability of ascidian mitochondrial gene order: exposing the myth of deuterostome organelle genome stability.
TLDR
The authors' data show that Ascidiacea are characterized by: extensive gene order rearrangements both within and between the three major lineages; lack of significant similarities to the gene order of other deuterostomes; and an extent of rearrangement comparable with that of Mollusca, a phylum with highly rearranged mtDNAs.

Mitochondrial Genomes of Kinorhyncha: trnM Duplication and New Gene Orders within Animals
TLDR
Gene order analysis reveals that gene arrangement specific of Priapulida may be ancestral for Scalidophora, Ecdysozoa, and even Protostomia. Expand
Tunicate mitogenomics and phylogenetics: peculiarities of the Herdmania momus mitochondrial genome and support for the new chordate phylogeny
TLDR
This is the first mitogenomic study supporting the new chordate phylogeny revealed by recent phylogenomic analyses and illustrates the beneficial effects of an increased taxon sampling coupled with the use of more realistic amino acid substitution models for the reconstruction of animal phylogeny. Expand
Evolution of the mitochondrial genome of Metazoa as exemplified by comparison of congeneric species
TLDR
The data reviewed here show that the plasticity of Metazoa mtDNA is higher than previously thought and mainly due to variation in number and location of tRNA genes, and the analysis of congeneric species promises to be a valuable approach for the assessment of the mtDNA evolutionary trend in poorly or not yet sampled metazoan groups.

Evolutionary mitogenomics of Chordata: the strange case of ascidians and vertebrates
TLDR
Different evolutionary dynamics, probably related to divergent functional constraints, have modelled the overall mtDNA structure and organization of the three chordate subphyla. Expand

Complete DNA sequence of the mitochondrial genome of the ascidian Halocynthia roretzi (Chordata, Urochordata).
TLDR
The gene order of Halocynthia mtDNA is completely different from that of vertebrate mtDNAs except for tRNA(His)-tRNA(Ser)(GCU), suggesting that evolutionary change in the mt-gene structure is much accelerated in the urochordate line compared with that in vertebrates. Expand
Evolution of pulmonate gastropod mitochondrial genomes: comparisons of gene organizations of Euhadra, Cepaea and Albinaria and implications of unusual tRNA secondary structures.
TLDR
The acceptor stems of many tRNAs show a considerable number of mismatched basepairs, indicating that the RNA editing process recently demonstrated in Euhadra is widespread in the pulmonate gastropods. Expand
The mitochondrial genome of the sea anemone Metridium senile (Cnidaria): introns, a paucity of tRNA genes, and a near-standard genetic code.
TLDR
Observations indicate that most of the genetic variations previously reported in metazoan mtDNAs developed after Cnidaria diverged from the common ancestral line of all other Metazoa. Expand
The mitochondrial genome of Onchocerca volvulus: sequence, structure and phylogenetic analysis.
TLDR
The complete DNA sequence of the mitochondrial genome of Onchocerca volvulus is described, and the genome exhibits a striking codon bias, with 15/20 amino acids having a single codon preference of > 70%. Expand
The mitochondrial genome of the hemichordate Balanoglossus carnosus and the evolution of deuterostome mitochondria.
TLDR
The complete nucleotide sequence of the mitochondrial genome of the hemichordate Balanoglossus carnosus (acorn worm) was determined, andylogenetic trees estimated from the inferred protein sequences indicate that hemichordsates are a sister group of echinoderms. Expand
The Cephalopod Loligo bleekeri Mitochondrial Genome: Multiplied Noncoding Regions and Transposition of tRNA Genes
TLDR
Comparison of the gene arrangements of Loligo, Katharina tunicata, and Littorina saxatilis mt genomes revealed that 17 tRNA genes of the Loligo mt genome are adjacent to noncoding regions, suggesting that Loligomt genome may have spread over the genome, and this may have been coupled with the multiplication of the nonc coding regions. Expand
The mitochondrial genome of the brachiopod Laqueus rubellus.
TLDR
Combined cooccurrence of such gene assortments indicates that the Laqueus mt genome is similar to the annelid Lumbricus, the mollusc Katharina, and the octocoral Sarcophyton mt genomes, each with statistical significance. Expand
Complete DNA sequence of the mitochondrial genome of the black chiton, Katharina tunicata.
TLDR
All possible codons except the stop codons TAA and TAG are used in the protein-encoding genes, and Katharina mtDNA appears to use the same variation of the mitochondrial genetic code that is used in Drosophila and Mytilus. Expand

TLDR
The sequence of 13.9 kilobases of the 17.1-kb mitochondrial genome of Mytilus edulis has been determined, and the arrangement of all genes has been deduced, which is remarkably unlike that found in any other known metazoan mtDNA. Expand
