The crustacean isopod Armadillidium vulgare is characterized by an unusual ∼42-kb-long mitochondrial genome consisting of two molecules co-occurring in mitochondria: a circular ∼28-kb dimer formed by two ∼14-kb monomers fused in opposite polarities and a linear ∼14-kb monomer. Here we determined the nucleotide sequence of the fundamental monomeric unit of A. vulgare mitochondrial genome, to gain new insight into its structure and evolution. Our results suggest that the junction zone between… CONTINUE READING
