Polyadenylated transcripts containing random gene fragments are expressed in dinoflagellate mitochondria.


An AT-rich cDNA isolated from a Gonyaulax library was identified as a putative mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase subunit 3 (cox3) by sequence comparisons. Transcripts hybridizing to this cox3 probe are abundant, are found in poly(A) enriched RNA fractions and have a variable length when tested by Northern blot analysis. A PCR analysis of 21 cox3 clones… (More)
