Screening an Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) salmon kidney cDNA library with total cDNA led to the isolation of a clone which hybridised strongly to both salmon kidney and spleen total cDNA probes. Analysis of the sequence identified the cDNA as the gene coding for subunit II of cytochrorne c oxidase (coxII). Northern blot studies revealed a transcript of approximately 700 bp in liver poly A+ mRNA. The DNA sequence of the Atlantic salmon coxII gene employs the mammalian mitochondrial genetic code and is strongly conserved when compared to other species.
