The 6-kb element of Plasmodium falciparum encodes mitochondrial cytochrome genes

The 6-kb element of Plasmodium falciparum encodes mitochondrial cytochrome genes

Molecular and Biochemical Parasitology 52.1: 145-148

The 6-kb tandemly repeated linear extrachromosomal element in P. falciparum was sequenced, and found to encode fragmented and abbreviated rRNA genes and 3 open reading frames with homology to classical mitochondrial protein coding genes. The open reading frames encode: a protein homologous to cytochrome b (97% amino acid sequence conservation with P. yoelii and 94% with P. gallinaceum); cytochrome oxidase I (99% amino acid sequence conservation with P. gallinaceum and 97% with P. yoelii); cytochrome oxidase III (95% and 94% conserved relative to P. gallinaceum and P. yoelii).
