The organization of the 5S genes in the genome of Tetrahymena thermophila was examined in various strains, with germinal ageing, and the 5S gene clusters were mapped to the MIC chromosomes. When MIC or MAC DNA is cut with the restriction enzyme EcoRI, electrophoresed, blotted, and probed with a 5S rDNA probe, the banding patterns represent the clusters of… CONTINUE READING
