Expression of homing endonuclease gene and insertion-like element in sea anemone mitochondrial genomes: lesson learned from Anemonia viridis

Highlights • We report complete mitochondrial genome sequences and corresponding mito-transcriptomes of the two related sea anemone species Anemonia viridis and Anemonia majano • We describe structural features of group I introns in the NADH dehydrogenase 5 gene and the cytochrome oxidase I (COI) gene, the latter containing a homing endonuclease gene • We provide […]
