The genes for rDNA in eukaryotic organisms are arranged in tandemly repeated units comprising the 18S, 5.8S and 25S rDNA genes separated by an intergenic spacer region (IGS). This contains signals for transcription of the rDNA genes, including the promoter, transcription start sites and transcription terminators. We have isolated a clone for an rDNA operon from Brassica oleracea var. alboglabra [2] and have sequenced the IGS (Fig. 1 a). In common with most other eukaryotic IGSs, the B. oleracea… CONTINUE READING
