The mitochondrial DNA was isolated from Aspergillus niger WU-2223L, a citric acid-production strain, and characterized by restriction-endonuclease mapping. Cloned fragments which covered the total range of the mitochondrial DNA were assembled and utilized to construct the restriction-endonuclease map for nine restriction enzymes. This map showed that the mitochondrial DNA was a circular molecule of 32.6 kb.
