BackgroundMitochondrial (mt) gene arrangement is highly variable among molluscs and especially among bivalves. Of the 30 complete molluscan mt-genomes published to date, only one is of a heterodont bivalve, although this is the most diverse taxon in terms of species numbers. We determined the complete sequence of the mitochondrial genomes of Acanthocardia tuberculata and Hiatella arctica, (Mollusca, Bivalvia, Heterodonta) and describe their gene contents and genome organisations to assess the… Expand
The complete DNA sequence of the mitochondrial genome of Sinonovacula constricta (Bivalvia: Solecurtidae)
The nucleotide sequence of the mitochondrial genome of the solecurtidae Bivalvia mollusca Sinonovacula constricta (GenBank accession number EU880278) has been determined and is reported here. WeExpand
Complete mitochondrial genome of Coelomactra antiquata (Mollusca: Bivalvia): The first representative from the family Mactridae with novel gene order and unusual tandem repeats.
TLDR
The phylogenetic trees based on mitochondrial genomes support the monophyly of Veneridae and Lucinidae, and the relationship at the family level: ((Veneridae+Mactridae)+(Cardiidae+Solecurtidae))+Lucinidae), which is consistent with the morphological classification. Expand
Complete mitochondrial genome sequence of Japanese cockle Fulvia mutica (Cardiidae)
TLDR
The complete mitochondrial genome sequence of Fulvia mutica (Veneroida; Cardiidae) was determined, suggesting the existence of a variable number of tandem repeats, which was expected to provide valuable information for developing useful genetic markers for phylogenetic study and population genetics. Expand
The complete mitochondrial genome of the clam Mactra veneriformis (Bivalvia: Mactridae): Has a unique non-coding region, missing atp8 and typical tRNASer
TLDR
The complete mitrochondrial DNA of the clam M. veneriformis was determined and the mt genome was compared with that of other veneroids, finding that atp8 and two tRNA Ser genes are missing in themt genome. Expand
Complete mitochondrial DNA sequence and phylogenetic analysis of Zhikong scallop Chlamys farreri (Bivalvia: Pectinidae)
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis based on 12 concatenated amino acid sequences of protein-coding genes supports the monophyly of Pectinidae and paraphyletic Pteriomorphia with respect to Heteroconchia. Expand
Characteristics of mitochondrial DNA of unionid bivalves (Mollusca: Bivalvia: Unionidae). II. Comparison of complete sequences of maternally inherited mitochondrial genomes of Sinanodonta woodiana and Unio pictorum
TLDR
Gene trnS1 (serine, UGA) in unionids is very little variable with respect to tRNA secondary structure, and nucleotide composition, while its inter-specific variation is half lower than in other mt-tRNAs. Expand
Characterization of a mitochondrial ORF from the gender-associated mtDNAs of Mytilus spp. (Bivalvia: Mytilidae): identification of the "missing" ATPase 8 gene.
TLDR
The results indicate that a novel mytilid ORF of significant length is a candidate for the atp8 gene, and support recognizing the presence of ATPase 8 in most bivalves mt genomes (if not all) rather than the continued characterization of these genomes as lacking this gene. Expand
Complete mitochondrial DNA sequence of oyster Crassostrea hongkongensis-a case of "Tandem duplication-random loss" for genome rearrangement in Crassostrea?
TLDR
The determination of the complete mitochondrial DNA sequence of C. hongkongensis has yielded useful insight into features of gene order, variation, and evolution of Crassostrea and bivalve mt-genomes, inspiring more research to gain understanding to mechanisms underlying gene and genome evolution in bivalves and mollusks.

The Complete Mitochondrial Genomes of Six Heterodont Bivalves (Tellinoidea and Solenoidea): Variable Gene Arrangements and Phylogenetic Implications
TLDR
Comparisons of mitochondrial genomes of six species belonging to Heterodonta support that comparisons of mt gene order rearrangements, to some extent, are a useful tool for phylogenetic studies. Expand
The complete mitochondrial genome of the clam Meretrix petechialis (Mollusca: Bivalvia: Veneridae)
TLDR
The complete mitochondrial genome of the clam Meretrix petechialis (Bivalvia: Veneridae) is presented, and it is observed that it has only one copy of trnS and a duplication of the trnQ gene. Expand

The complete sequence and gene organization of the mitochondrial genome of the gadilid scaphopod Siphonondentalium lobatum (Mollusca).
TLDR
The deep molluscan phylogeny is probably beyond the resolution of mitochondrial protein sequences, and assessing the phylogenetic signal in gene order data requires a much larger taxon sample than is currently available, given the exceptional diversity of this character set in the Mollusca. Expand
Complete mtDNA sequence of the North American freshwater mussel, Lampsilis ornata (Unionidae): an examination of the evolution and phylogenetic utility of mitochondrial genome organization in Bivalvia (Mollusca).
TLDR
The first complete nucleotide sequence of the mitochondrial (mt) genome of a North American freshwater bivalve, Lampsilis ornata, is reported and what role, if any, doubly uniparental inheritance and recombination between sexual mitotypes may play in influencing gene rearrangement of the mt genome in some bivalves lineages is discussed. Expand
Complete sequences of the highly rearranged molluscan mitochondrial genomes of the Scaphopod Graptacme eborea and the bivalve Mytilus edulis.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis weakly supports an association of the scaphopod with gastropods to the exclusion of Bivalvia, Cephalopoda, and Polyplacophora, but is generally unable to convincingly resolve the relationships among major groups of the Lophotrochozoa, in contrast to the good resolution seen for several other major metazoan groups.

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
Complete mtDNA of Ciona intestinalis Reveals Extensive Gene Rearrangement and the Presence of an atp8 and an Extra trnM Gene in Ascidians
TLDR
The complete mitochondrial genome of the model organism Ciona intestinalis has been amplified by long-PCR using specific primers designed on putative mitochondrial transcripts identified from publicly available mitochondrial-like expressed sequence tags to suggest that this genome is more similar to those of some protostomes than to deuterostomes.

The complete mitochondrial genome of the articulate brachiopod Terebratalia transversa.
TLDR
The complete mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) of the articulate brachiopod Terebratalia transversa is sequenced, suggesting that an inversion that resulted in a reversal in the direction of first-strand replication has occurred in one of the two lineages. Expand

TLDR
Both the full COII DNA and protein sequences and a portion of the 16S rRNA gene were found to possess a striking similarity to published Cnidarian mtDNA sequences, allying the Porifera more closely to the CNidaria than to any other metazoan phylum. 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
