In the paper “Mitochondrial tRNA-lookalikes in nuclear chromosomes: Could they be functional?”1 we discuss the possible functional roles of tRNA-lookalikes in the nuclear chromosomes. We also track the evolutionary history of the mitochondrial tRNA-lookalikes in nuclear chromosomes in 10 different species. The analysis was performed the same way as in our previous study2, which can also be found here. The data can be downloaded by the following buttons:

File structure

For each organism, the list of tRNA-lookalikes is in tab-delimeted format. The columns are as follows:
Column 1: Chromosome or scaffold
Column 2: Strand
Column 3: Start coordinate of the tRNA-lookalike, inclusive
Column 4: End coordinate of the tRNA-lookalike, inclusive
Column 5: Best-matched mitochondrial tRNA coordinates
Column 6: Information about the mitochondrial tRNA (e.g. amino acid encoded)
Column 7: Percentage identity of the best-matched tRNA sequence with the genomic sequence of the tRNA-lookalike
Column 8: Number of mismatches between the sequence of the best-matched tRNA and the sequence of the tRNA-lookalike
