Organization of chromosome ends in Ustilago maydis. RecQ-like helicase motifs at telomeric regions.


In this study we have established the structure of chromosome ends in the basidiomycete fungus Ustilago maydis. We isolated and characterized several clones containing telomeric regions and found that as in other organisms, they consist of middle repeated DNA sequences. Two principal types of sequence were found: UTASa was highly conserved in nucleotide… (More)
