We have cloned a telomere and adjacent sequences from rat-derived Pneumocystis carinii using the ability of foreign telomeres to complement a yeast artificial chromosome (YAC) deficient by one telomere in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Characterization of the cloned DNA in the recombinant YAC demonstrated that it was a chimera of two P. carinii sequences, namely(More)
The opportunistic fungal pathogen Pneumocystis carinii sp. f. hominis is a frequent cause of pneumonia in the immunocompromised host. Analysis of genetic variation among isolates of P. carinii sp. f. hominis from 12 human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected persons with single and multiple episodes of P. carinii pneumonia was undertaken at the internal(More)
