Abstract

Abstract The complete mitochondrial genome of Chinese green hydra, Hydra sinensis (Hydroida: Hydridae) is a linear molecule of 16,189 bp in length, containing 13 protein-coding genes, small and large subunit ribosomal RNAs, methionine and tryptophan transfer RNAs, a pseudogene consisting of a partial copy of COI and terminal sequences at two ends of the linear mitochondrial DNA. The A + T content of the overall base composition of H-strand is 77.2% (T: 41.7%; C: 10.9%; A: 35.5%; and G: 11.9%). COI and ND1 genes begin with GTG as start codon, while other 11 protein-coding genes start with a typical ATG initiation codon. COII, ATP8, ATP6, COIII, ND5, ND6, ND3, ND1, ND4 and COI genes are terminated with TAA as stop codon, ND4L ends with TAG, ND2 ends with TA and Cyt b ends with T.
