The sequence of a 1,427 base pair restriction fragment, HaeIII fragment 6, of the ciliate protozoan Tetrahymena mitochondrial DNA, is presented. The first 780 nucleotide sequence aligns well with the terminal segment of the large rDNA sequence of Paramecium mitochondria. Immediately abutting this rDNA termination sequence, a tRNA sequence was found with anticodon UAA for leucine. The derived tRNA sequence is 81 bases long without the 3′ CCA end, has a high G+C content of 48.1%, and can be… CONTINUE READING
