Ribosomes from higher-plant mitochondria contain 5S rRNA, in contrast with the mitochondrial ribosomes of animals and fungi, in which such a component has not been detected. In common with the ribosomes of prokaryotes and chloroplasts, higher-plant mitochondrial ribosomes do not appear to contain an RNA equivalent to the 5.8 S rRNA that is found in eukaryoytes hydrogen-bonded to the largest of the cytoplasmic rRNA species.
