Sequence studies on 16S ribosomal RNA from a blue-green alga. Academic Article uri icon


  • The 16S ribosomal RNA of the blue green alga Anacystis nidulans has been characterized in terms of the oligomers generated by digestion with T1 ribonuclease. A. nidulans by this criterion is definitely a procaryote; being no more distant from Bacilli or Enterics than the latter two are from one another. A. nidulans appears to be somewhat more closely related to the Bacilli than to the Enterics.
