Characterization of two types of rRNA gene repeat units from the crustacean Artemia

Abstract : We have previously described that Artemia rRNA genes are organized with a basic repeat unit of 16.5 kb [Cruces et al., Biochem. Biophys. Res. Commun. 98 (1981) 404-409]. Here we describe the organization of the DNA coding for rRNA of a different population of this crustacean that has a repeat unit of 12.2 kb. Both types of repeat units have been cloned and the organization of the external spacers studied by restriction analysis. Both external spacers contain repeated sequences, but they are not homologous to each other. Sequences from the external spacer of the 16.5 kb repeat are also found elsewhere in the genome, within sequences not related to rRNA genes.
