We report the organization and transcription of diverged tandemly repeated Y-linked Su(Ste) genes that are considered as suppressors of testis-expressed X-linked-repeated Stellate genes that encode a protein sharing extensive homology with beta-subunit of casein kinase 2. Clustering of restriction variants is confirmed. Size variants of Su(Ste) repeats appeared to be nonhomogeneously distributed among the P1 phage clones. Different ways of Su(Ste) RNA processing because of the appearance of new… CONTINUE READING
