A gene for human 5S rRNA has been cloned and sequenced. The gene was isolated on a 638 bp fragment (Fig. 1) from human placenta DNA by digestion with BamHI and Sad and cloning into a Bluescnpt M13 plasmid. A ^P-labelled SP6-transcript of a mouse pseudogene was used as a probe. The fragment has a restriction pattern identical to the pattern of the majority… CONTINUE READING
