DNA was purified from the isolated mitochondria of a Mucor piriformis wild-type strain (NRRL 26211). A circular restriction map of the mitochondrial DNA was established on the basis of single and double digests with several restriction endonucleases. The average mitochondrial DNA size calculated from these data was 33.53 kbp; this is in good agreement with the contour length size (33.62 kbp) of the open circular molecules detected by electron microscopy. Heterologous hybridizations with cloned Aspergillus nidulans mitochondrial genes were used to locate some coding regions on the map.
