Expression of the linear mitochondrial (mt) plasmid pClK1 of strain K of the ascomycete Claviceps purpurea was studied at the RNA and protein level. Using strand-specific probes two major transcripts were detected, corresponding to ORF1 and ORF2 of the plasmid, which most likely code for a DNA-polymerase and an RNA-polymerase, respectively.

pClT5, a linear mitochondrial (mt) plasmid from Claviceps purpurea, strain T5, was sequenced and compared to pClK1, a linear mt plasmid from an unrelated C. purpurea strain. Both plasmids have terminal proteins (TPs) at their inverted terminal repeats (TlR). The TlRs of both plasmids show short conserved sequences, which are probably involved in plasmid(More)
