Abstract

the nucleotide sequence of the 3' terminal 568 bases of the 18S rRNA gene from Mucor racemosus was determined. The 3' end of the structural gene was identified by comparison with the published sequence for the Saccharomyces cerevisiae gene. The M. racemosus gene was found to share 83.8% homology with that of S. cerevisiae and 71-81% homology with those of human, mouse, maize, Xenopus laevis and Tetrahymena thermophila. The known methylation sites in X. laevis and human were also highly conserved in M. racemosus and located within most conserved regions of 18S RNA gene throughout evolution.
