The complete mitochondrial genome, containing 17,526 bp, was determined from the pitviper Bothrops jararaca. It is the first mitogenome for the most medically important genus of snake in Latin America. This mitogenome has common snake mitochondrial features such as a duplicated control region that has nearly identical sequences at two different locations of the mitogenome and a translocation of tRNA-Leu (UUR). Besides, we found a translocation of the tRNA-Pro compared to Colubridae snakes. Finally, an unusual possible duplication containing a tRNA-Phe was observed for the first time and may represent a marker of the genus. (AU)
