The ribosomal RNA genes are present in tandemly repeated arrays at the nucleolus organizer (NOR) of specific chromosomes. Each repeating unit is transcribed as a precursor which is processed into the mature 18S, 5.8S and 25S rRNAs [2]. The 18S rRNA gene of each transcription unit is separated from the 25S rRNA gene by a untranscribed intergenic spacer (IGS), whereas the 5.8S rRNA gene is separated from the 18S rRNA gene and from the 25S rRNA gene by internal transcribed spacers, named ITS1 and… CONTINUE READING
