 en Analysis of Complete Mitochondrial Genome Sequence of Aeropus licenti check for this species in other resources Chang
Gao, Jia; Cheng, Chun-hua & Huang, Yuan

Abstract

The complete mitochondrial genome sequence of Aeropus licenti check for this species in other resources Chang was determined using long PCR and conserved primer walking approaches. The results showed that the entire mitochondrial genome of Aeropus licenti Chang is 15 597 bp long with A+T content 74.8%. All 37 genes are conserved in the position observed in that of Locusta migratoria check for this species in other resources . Genes are closely assembled one after the other, leaving a total of 105 bp (excluding the A+T rich region) in intergenic spacers, ranging in size from 1 bp to 21 bp. There are a total of 58 overlapping nucleotides among 10 genes with overlapping range from 1 to 17 bp. Four types of start codons were identified in the 13 protein coding genes (PCGs), in which TAA and TAG were used in 12 PCGs as stop codons, except ND5 (T). Most tRNA genes could form typical secondary structures except tRNASer (AGN), which had an absence of the DHU arm. There are six domains, 47 helices and three domains, 31 helices in the secondary structures of lrRNA and srRNA respectively. In addition, there is an A+T rich region with 712 bp in length.
