The complete mitochondrial genome of Ceracris versicolor (Orthoptera: Acridoidea: Arcypteridae).

Abstract

The complete mitochondrial genome of Ceracris versicolor is determined here. It is 15,616 bp in length and contains 75.2% AT. All 13 mitochondrial PCGs share the start codon ATN, except for cox1 (CCG start codon). The usual termination codons (TAA) and incomplete stop codons (T) are found from 13 protein-coding genes. All tRNA genes could be folded into the typical cloverleaf secondary structure, except trnS (AGN) lacking of the dihydrouridine arm. The most frequent amino acids in the PCGs of C. versicolor are Leucine (14.45%), Isoleucine (10.50%), Serine (9.53%), Phenylalanine (9.26%), and the total content of these amino acids was 43.74%. The sizes of the large and small ribosomal RNA genes are 1315 and 781 bp, respectively. The AT content of the A + T-rich region is 87.5%.
