Transcripts and translation products of a mitochondrial plasmid of Claviceps purpurea


Expression of the linear mitochondrial (mt) plasmid pClK1 of strain K of the ascomycete Claviceps purpurea was studied at the RNA and protein level. Using strand-specific probes two major transcripts were detected, corresponding to ORF1 and ORF2 of the plasmid, which most likely code for a DNA-polymerase and an RNA-polymerase, respectively.
