Unusual organization of a ribosomal protein operon in the plastid genome of Cryptomonas Φ: evolutionary considerations


the region of the plastid genome containing the genes for ribosomal proteins S12 and S7 and the elongation factor Tu (corresonding to three of the four str operon genes of Escherichia coli) was investigated in the unicellular marine alga Cryptomonas. Sequence analysis shows the gene organization to be rps12–16 bp spacer-rps7–68 bp spacer-tufA. No introns… (More)
