Multiple sequence classes of kinetoplast minicircle DNA from Leishmania tarentolae were cleaved by mung bean nuclease in the presence of formamide, yielding unit length linear molecules which retained the anomalous electrophoretic mobility in acrylamide characteristic of minicircle DNA. No specific cleavage site sequence common to all minicircle sequence(More)
A 2.76 kb segment of the 12 kb divergent region of the Leishmania tarentolae kinetoplast maxicircle DNA consists almost entirely of repeated sequences. The repeats can be grouped into six families, some of which are present throughout the remainder of the divergent region. The repeats are oriented in a head-to-tail fashion with the three simplest repeats(More)
