Mytilus edulis Core Histone Genes Are Organized in Two Clusters Devoid of Linker Histone Genes


Abstract Comparison of histone gene cluster arrangements in several species has revealed a broad spectrum of histone gene patterns. To elucidate the core histone gene organization in a mollusk, we have analyzed a Mytilus edulis genomic library and have isolated eight phage clones containing core histone genes. Analysis of insert DNA revealed that the core… (More)
