The expansion segments within the eukaryote nuclear 23S-like ribosomal RNA molecule are now well characterized in many diverse organisms. A different base compositional bias, a higher propensity for size variability, and an increased evolutionary rate distinguish these regions from the universally conserved “core” regions of the molecule. In addition, some expansion segments of higher eukaryotes exhibit significant sequence simplicity which is hypothesized to occur by slippage-mediated… CONTINUE READING
