Denaturation mapping studies on the circular chloroplast deoxyribonucleic acid from pea leaves.


The structure of circular pea chloroplast DNA (ctDNA) has been analyzed by denaturation mapping. All of the pea ctDNA molecules that were examined had identical gross base sequences. Denaturation maps were constructed at denaturation levels of 2.5%, 22%, and 44%. These denaturation maps showed that the circular pea ctDNA contained six small AT-rich regions… (More)
