Great uniformity exists among mitochondrial genomes of bilaterian animals (e.g., chordates, mollusks, arthropods). The typical bilaterian mitochondrial genome (mtgenome) is a compact molecule of 13–16 kilobase pairs (kbp), containing 13 protein-coding genes, 22 transfer RNA (tRNA) genes, and 2 ribosomal RNA (rRNA) genes. Sponges are among the first diverging animal phyla. They have larger (18–25 kbp) mt-genomes than the typical bilaterian mt-genome and usually contain an extra proteincoding… CONTINUE READING
