The coding section of the apocytochrome b gene (cobA) of the mitochondrial DNA of Aspergillus nidulans has been completely sequenced. The gene comprises two exons of 507 and 654 bp separated by one intron of approximately 1.1 kb. The derived amino acid sequence shows 61% homology with that of Saccharomyces cerevisiae and 51% homology with the cognate human sequence. Comparison of these sequences indicates that UGA codes for tryptophan in the A. nidulans mitochondrial system. The intron is in… CONTINUE READING
