  • The ribosomal RNA multigene family in the fungus fly Sciara coprophila contains a total of only 65 to 70 repeat units. We explored the types and frequencies of variant repeats in this small multigene family by characterizing different cloned rDNA variants from Sciara. Although we did not observe any intergenic spacer length variants in Sciara, we found a variant due to the insertion of a putative mobile element (lambda Bc11), and variants containing ribosomal insertion elements. By DNA sequence… CONTINUE READING
