A λ library of Ascobolus immersus stock 50 was screened for repeated DNA sequences by employing differential hybridization to identify transposable elements. Several λ clones carrying repeated DNA sequences were obtained. One clone contains a repeated DNA sequence with unusual characteristics. This DNA element appears to be associated with rDNA sequences. Its methylation pattern is also reminiscent of rDNA. Sequence analysis indicates that all or at least many copies of the element have… CONTINUE READING
