Two lambda phage clones carrying mitochondrial-DNA-like (mtDNA-like) sequences isolated from a human gene library were named Lm E-1 and Lm C-2, and their DNA structures were characterized. Lm E-1 contains about 0.4 kb DNA homologous to the 5' portion of the mitochondrial 16S ribosomal RNA (rRNA) gene and Lm C-2, a 1.6 kb DNA homologous to the 3' portion of the 12S rRNA gene and to almost all of the 16S rRNA gene. Comparisons of their nucleotide sequences with those of the corresponding regions… CONTINUE READING
