The linear mitochondrial plasmid pClK1 of the phytopathogenic fungus Claviceps purpurea may code for a DNA polymerase and an RNA polymerase


Plasmid pClK1, a linear mitochondrial plasmid of Claviceps purpurea, was completely sequenced. The sequence contains two long open reading frames (ORF1, 3291 bp; ORF2, 2910 bp), and at least four smaller ORFs. The potential polypeptide derived from ORF1 shows homology to the family B type DNA polymerases. The product of ORF2 has significant homology to the… (More)
