dycf1 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.

eEncodes a putative protein similar to ycf15 from Lactuca sativa (ABD47292.1) and Helianthus annuus (ABD47205.1)

fGene that undergoes trans-splicing
