The Complete Mitochondrial Genome of Iassus latus Shen & Cai, 2010 (Hemiptera: Cicadellidae)

Junfang He, Bin Zhang


The complete mitochondrial genome of Iassus latus Shen & Cai, 2010(Hemiptera, Cicadellidae) was described, which was 15, 181 bp in length, encoding the standard set of 22 transfer RNAs (tRNAs), two ribosomal RNAs (rRNAs), 13 proteincoding genes (PCGs) and one A-T rich region (also called control region). The content of A+T was 80.12% (A: 46.62%, T: 33.50%, C: 10.96%, G: 8.93%), which was much higher than that of G+C. The complete mitochondrial genome of I. latus and the other 25 species were used for phylogenetic analysis using the Bayesian method. The phylogenetic tree visualized that I. latus and species from the same subfamily were clustered in one branch, which was closely related to Iassus dorsalis. The identified mitochondrial genome of I. latus will provide fundamental data to explore the evolution of the mitochondrial genome in Iassinae.
