Heterogeneity of mitochondrial DNA from Saccharomyces cerevisiae and genetic information for tRNA


Nucleic Acids Research 2(10): 1777-1786
Heterogeneity of mitochondrial DNA from Saccharomyces cerevisiae and genetic information for tRNA
Mitochondrial DNA from wild-type Saccharomyces cerevisiae and from an "extreme" petite mutant were analyzed by hybridization of several tRNAs on DNA fragments of different buoyant density, obtained by sonication and fractionation on a CsCl gradient. The hybridization patterns show that the genes for tRNAser, tRNAphe, tRNAhis, tRNAval, tRNAileu are present on wild-type mitochondrial DNA, while only genes for tRNAser and tRNAhis are present on petite mitochondrial DNA; moreover the hybridization patterns indicate that these genes are not clustered and suggest that more than one gene might exist for tRNAser and tRNAhis.
