Cloning and characterization of a repetitive sequence fromPneumocystis carinii

Four repetitive sequence clones measuring 10.9–23.4 kb in length were isolated from the genomic library ofPneumocystis carinii. Restriction enzymes mapping and cross-hybridization studies revealed that these clones are interrelated and that they derive from the common repeat unit, which is specific forP. carinii. Dot-blot analysis suggested that the copy… CONTINUE READING
