Abstract

Sunflower mitochondrial DNA contains a single copy of the cob gene. The gene begins with the unusual GTG initiation codon and lies in a transcription unit having a different organization with respect to that common to the other six known sequences from plant species which include both monocotyledons and dicotyledons.
