The complete mitochondrial genome of the gray garden slug Deroceras reticulatum (Gastropoda: Pulmonata: Stylommatophora)
Seung-Joon Ahn, Ruth Martin, Sujaya Rao and Man-Yeon Choi
The complete mitochondrial genome sequence of Deroceras reticulatum has been sequenced and annotated in this study. The mitogenome of D. reticulatum is 14,048 base pairs in length, and contains 13 protein-coding genes (PCGs), 22 transfer RNA genes, and 2 ribosomal RNA genes. The overall base composition is 31.0% A, 12.2% C, 17.7% G, and 39.1% T. Based on phylogenetic analysis using the amino acid sequences of PCGs, D. reticulatum was shown to be closely related to other species of Stylommatophora. The first mitochondrial genome from the Agrolimacidae family provides valuable molecular data for taxonomical identification and further evolutionary studies of terrestrial slugs.
