As the organisation of mitochondrial DNA is rather complex (ranging from supercoiled monomeric circles to catenanes and multimeric networks) it is not surprising that there are at least two different mechanisms of replication: a unidirectional, strand-asynchronous mode (RITOLS=RNA intermediates throughout the lagging strand) and a bi-directional strand-coupled mode (COSCOFA=conventional strand-coupled Okazaki-fragment associating).
