Germ line micronuclear genes in ciliated protozoa contain two types of interrupting sequences. Some genes contain introns, but internal eliminated segments (IESs) are much more prevalent. IESs are AT-rich DNA segments that separate macronucleus-destined segments (MDSs) in micronuclear genes. All IESs are excised and destroyed when a micronucleus develops into a macronucleus after each cell mating. IESs have no discernible function. Therefore, an investigation of the behavior of IESs in… CONTINUE READING
