Putative gene rearrangement events in gastropod mitochondrial genomes. Reishia clavigera was used as the standard ancestral gene pattern. Rearranged genes are indicated by different colors. Only the rearrangements for protein-coding and rRNA genes are taken into consideration. Four types of putative rearrangement events are possible in this context: reversal, reverse transposition, transposition and tandem duplication and random loss (TDRL). In the step-by-step scheme, the intermediate statuses are used to show different types of gene rearrangement events and the rearrangement process. a Putative gene rearrangement events from R. clavigera to Radix swinhoei mt genome. b Putative gene rearrangement events from R. clavigera to Planorbarius corneus mt genome
