Abstract

THE ribosomal RNA genes of Escherichia coli are arranged in tandem behind a common promotor in the order of 16S, 23S, 5S (for review see ref. 1). In this report we redetermine the positions of the 16S (0.55 × 106 dalton), 23S (1.10 × 106 dalton), and 5S rRNA (0.04 × 106 dalton) cistrons on their unit of transcription (scripton) by the ultraviolet light mapping technique2-9 principally to demonstrate the applicability of this technique to the determination of the transcriptional linkage of genes in E. coli.
