In Sulfolobus sp. strain B12, single-copy genes encode the three ribosomal RNAs. The genes for the 16S rRNA and for the 23S rRNA are closely linked but separated from the 5S rRNA gene. Transcription of the 16S/23S rRNA gene cluster starts 139 nucleotides upstream of the 5'-end of mature 16S rRNA. For the 5S rRNA gene the point of transcription initiation coincides with the 5'-end of mature 5S rRNA. The comparison of the upstream regions for these transcriptional start sites shows the presence… CONTINUE READING
