  1. aGene that contains one intron
  2. bTwo gene copies due to IR
  3. cGene that contains two introns
  4. dycf 1 spans an inverted repeat region (IRa) and the adjacent small single-copy region (SSC). ycf1-like is a truncated form of ycf1 that occurs in the inverted repeat region IRb.
  5. eEncodes a putative protein similar to ycf15 from Lactuca sativa (ABD47292.1) and Helianthus annuus (ABD47205.1)
  6. fGene that undergoes trans-splicing
