Abstract

We have isolated a cloned segment of Drosophila genomic DNA containing a ribosomal protein gene. Hybridization analysis of the DNA in this clone indicates a complex organization of repeated elements within this cloned segment. At least one of these repeated elements is homologous to regions of rDNA. Restriction analysis of the clone shows that some of the repeated elements are present as tandem duplications and in scattered locations within the cloned DNA segment. There are also three non-ribosomal protein genes contained in this clone, each of which is expressed along with the ribosomal protein gene into RNA species present in Drosophila embryos.
