The complete chloroplast genome sequence of Viola prionantha (Violaceae).
ABSTRACT: Viola Prionantha belongs to the family Violaceae. It has been widely used for a traditional Chinese herb with antibacterial activity and is grown as an early spring ornamental species in China. In this study, we determined the complete chloroplast genome sequence of V. prionantha which forms a circular structure. The whole chloroplast genome was 156,501 bp in length, consisting of a pair of inverted repeats (IR) of 26,404 bp, a large single-copy (LSC) region of 85,689 bp, and a small single-copy (SSC) region of 18,004 bp. We annotated 131 genes, including 84 coding sequences, 8 rRNA sequences, 37 tRNA sequences and 2 pesudogenes. Among the annotated genes, 17 genes contained one or two introns. Furthermore, a phylogenetic analysis revealed that V. prionantha and V. seoulensis clustered together as sisters to other Violaceae species.
