Comparative analysis of the structure of double-stranded RNA from killer strains of Saccharomyces cerevisiae



Comparative analysis of the structure of double-stranded RNA from killer strains of Saccharomyces cerevisiae



Molekuliarnaia Biologiia 22(1): 224-230



Double-stranded RNAs (M and L molecules) of two strains of the killer system Saccharomyces cerevisiae M437 (wild type) and ski-5 (superkiller mutant) were studied by means of electron microscopy and high resolution thermal melting. The M molecules of the ski-5 mutant were by 100 b.p. shorter than those of M437. L molecules were of the same length for both strains. Analysis of the differential melting curves of L molecules showed that L molecules differ significantly in their nucleotide sequences, whereas M molecules were practically identical. It was found that M molecules contained a long AU region: that of M molecules of M 437 was 170-180 b.p. long and contained almost no GC pairs, whereas the AU region of M molecules of the ski-5 mutant was three times shorter and contained GC pairs.
