Figure 1

Arrangement of the mitochondrial genome of Spirocerca lupi. Gene scaling is only approximate. All genes are coded by the same DNA strand and are transcribed clockwise. All genes have standard nomenclature except for the 22 tRNA genes, which are designated by the one-letter code for the corresponding amino acid, with numerals differentiating each of the two leucine- and serine-specifying tRNAs (L1 and L2 for codon families CUN and UUR, respectively; S1 and S2 for codon families UCN and, AGN respectively). “AT” refers to the non-coding region.
