Role-reversal of gender-associated mitochondrial DNA affects mitochondrial function in Mytilus edulis (Bivalvia: Mytilidae)



Role-reversal of gender-associated mitochondrial DNA affects mitochondrial function in Mytilus edulis (Bivalvia: Mytilidae)



Journal of Experimental Zoology. Part B, Molecular and Developmental Evolution 312(2): 108-117



Mussel species of the genus Mytilus possess an unusual system of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) transmission termed doubly uniparental inheritance. They are characterized by the presence of two highly divergent gender-associated mtDNA genomes (often with>20 and>10% divergences in DNA and amino acid sequences, respectively) that are inherited either maternally (F mtDNA) or paternally (M mtDNA).
