 The non-transcribed spacer of the ribosomal DNA repeat of Pythium pachycaule was found to exist in two versions, one about 200 bp longer than the other. Both versions contained a conserved 5s rRNA gene in inverted orientation and a diverged copy of the 5s sequence as a tandem repeat, with a spacer of about 180 bp between them. This is the first report of multiple 5s-like sequences in the non-transcribed spacer of the rDNA of any organism. The two diverged 5s sequences differ from each other at… CONTINUE READING
