Size and structure of yeast chromosomal DNA.

Published

Journal Article

Electron microscopic analysis indicates that yeast nuclear DNA can be isolated as linear molecules ranging in size from 50 mum (1.2 x 10(8) daltons) to 355 mum (8.4 x 10(8) daltons). Analysis indicates the data is consistent with the hypothesis that each yeast chromosome contains a single, linear DNA duplex. Mitochondrial DNA molecules have a contour length of 21 +/- 2 mum and are mostly linear.
