The complete DNA sequence is presented of H4-II, the second of the pair of histone H4 genes of the ciliated protozoan, Tetrahymena thermophila. Both H4 genes code for the same protein. Codon usage in these and other Tetrahymena genes is severely restricted and is similar to that in yeast. Flanking regions are AT-rich (greater than or equal to 75%), relative(More)
The level of chromatin structure at which DNase I recognizes conformational differences between inert and activated genes has been investigated. Bulk and ribosomal DNA's of Tetrahymena pyriformis were differentially labeled in vivo with [14C]- and [3H]-thymidine, respectively, utilizing a defined starvation-refeeding protocol. The 3H-labeled ribosomal genes(More)
