The complete cDNA sequence corresponding to the wheat coxIII gene transcript (coding for subunit 3 of cytochrome oxidase) has been determined by a method involving cDNA synthesis using specific oligonucleotides as primers followed by PCR amplification, cloning and sequencing of the amplification products. In 12 different clones, the same 13 nucleotide(More)
Total transfer RNAs were extracted from highly purified potato mitochondria. From quantitative measurements, the in vivo tRNA concentration in mitochondria was estimated to be in the range of 60 microM. Total potato mitochondrial tRNAs were fractionated by two-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. Thirty one individual tRNAs, which could read all(More)
We have isolated a new class of deletion mutants of phage lambda that extend from the prophage attachment site, att, into the gam and cIII genes. In this respect they are similar to certain of the lambda pbio transducing phage, but they differ in having a low burst size and in forming minute plaques. Lytically grown stocks of the deletions contain a(More)
