The nucleotide sequence of the 5S RNA of chicken embryo fibroblasts.


The nucleotide sequence of uniformly 32P-labelled chicken 5S RNA has been determined by analysing the end-products of T1 and pancreatic ribonuclease digestion. These oligonucleotides can be aligned by homology with the human sequence to give a sequence differing in only seven positions from that of Man. The sequence deduced here differs in two position from that previously published for chicken 5S RNA.
