Value 2904 nucleotides
Organism Bacteria Escherichia coli
Reference Brosius J, Dull TJ, Noller HF. Complete nucleotide sequence of a 23S ribosomal RNA gene from Escherichia coli. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 1980 Jan77(1):201-4. abstract and p. 202 left column top paragraphPubMed ID6153795
Method The sequences of both strands of the entire gene were determined, most of the sequence was independently confirmed by use of alternate restriction fragments, and all restriction cuts overlapped
Comments The large (50S) subunit of the ribosome is composed of a 23S subunit, a 5S subunit and 34 proteins
