Clonal variation of chromosome size derived from the rDNA cluster region in Candida albicans.


Of the eight Candida albicans chromosomes, chromosome 2, assigned by the MGL1 probe, is more variable in size than the other chromosomes among strains. We found that the clonal variation of chromosome 2, which carries a rDNA gene, occurred at a frequency of up to 10% of the progeny clones. After total chromosomal digestion with XhoI, which has no… (More)
