Synthesis and structure of ncmtRNAs. A Bidirectional transcription of the mitochondrial genome (red arrow: L-strand transcript; blue arrow: H-strand transcript), giving rise to the Sense (blue) and Antisense (red) transcripts form the 16S rRNA gene. After processing, the chimeric transcripts SncmtRNA and ASncmtRNAs are formed, each with inverted repeats and therefore long dsRNA structural motifs (figure
