Identification and mapping of a 60 bp EcoRI fragment in the Dictyostelium discoideum ribosomal DNA. Academic Article uri icon


  • We have re-examined the organization of the transcribed sequences in the ribosomal DNA repeat unit of Dictyostelium discoideum. In addition to the four EcoRI fragments previously reported, we have identified and cloned a fifth fragment which defines a small portion of the 25S ribosomal RNA. The fragment is 60 bp long and is located between the 1.5 kbp and the 3 kbp EcoRI fragments of the ribosomal DNA repeat unit.
