Genes for two subunits of succinate dehydrogenase form a cluster on the mitochondrial genome of Rhodophyta
- 48 Downloads
Mitochondrial DNA from the unicellular rhodophyteCyanidium caldarium RK-1 and the multicellularChondrus crispus were isolated, cloned, and sequenced. Two genes,sdhB andsdhC, that encode subunits of the succinate dehydrogenase, were identified by similarity. These genes form a cluster (titsdhCB) in both red algae.
