We found extreme variability in the number of group II introns for these two genes by analyzing eight P. littoralis specimens collected at worldwide habitats. The first intron of the LSU rRNA gene from a specimen collected in France and the fourth intron from a specimen harvested in Japan exhibited an exceptionally long evolutionary distance when compared with the cognate introns found in P. littoralis specimens. Moreover, these introns harbored an intact or nearly intact tripartite ORF, suggesting they are the result of a recent invasion of cognate introns. Based on the fact that many of the target sites were intronless, we propose that opportunity of intron infection is the bottleneck step of the group II intron cycle which consists of invasion, degeneration, and complete loss from the target site.</dcterms:abstract> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2015-11-25T10:53:21Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Ohama, Takeshi</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Kawai, Hiroshi</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Kawai, Hiroshi</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>Recurrent invasion of mitochondrial group II introns in specimens of Pylaiella littoralis (brown alga), collected worldwide</dcterms:title> <dc:contributor>Ikuta, Kyosuke</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Müller, Dieter G.</dc:creator> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dc:contributor>Müller, Dieter G.</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Ohama, Takeshi</dc:creator> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dc:creator>Ikuta, Kyosuke</dc:creator> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2015-11-25T10:53:21Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:issued>2008</dcterms:issued> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
