Location of the 5.8S rRNA gene of Saccharomyces cerevisiae.

Journal Article

Direct DNA sequence analysis of Saccharomyces cerevisiae ribosomal DNA cloned in an Escherichia coli plasmid revealed part of the structural gene for 5.8S rRNA at one end of a 700-base-pair EcoRI fragment. Taken with the previously established EcoRI restriction map of the ribosomal repeat unit, this sequence establishes that the yeast 5.8S RNA segment is located between the 18S and 28S segments in the 42S rRNA precursor and in the DNA which codes for it.
