A total of 68 different tRNA genes from the cellular slime mold Dictyostelium discoideum have been isolated and characterized. Although these tRNA genes show features common to typical nuclear tRNA genes from other organisms, several unique characteristics are apparent: (1) the 5'-proximal flanking region is very similar for most of the tRNA genes; (2) more than 80% of the tRNA genes contain an "ex-B motif" within their 3'-flanking region, which strongly resembles characteristics of the… CONTINUE READING
