Genomic exclusion and other micronuclear anomalies are common in genetically defective clones of tetrahymena thermophila.

Abstract

Genomic exclusion (GE) is an abnormal form of conjugation which has previously been described in detail for three hypodiploid strains of Tetrahymena thermophila. These strains cannot form gametic nuclei and by failing to participate in normal reciprocal fertilization their genes are excluded from exconjugants. To determine whether GE is a general property… (More)
