Source of sequence: Sequence was determined from a PCR product, which was ligated to a T-vector, from
genomic DNA of Imperata cylindrica (L.) Beauv. var. major Nees) C.E. Hubb.
Trivial name: Sequence of a 5.8S rRNA gene and of internal transcribed spacer (ITS) from Imperata
cylindrica var. major.
Description: In total, the sequence contains 21 bp of 18S rRNA gene, 584 bp of ITS region, and 44 bp
of 26S rRNA gene. The ITS region included ITS1, 5.8S rRNA gene, and ITS2. The length is 205 bp,
163 bp, and 216 bp, respectively. The length of ITS1, 5.8S rRNA gene, and ITS2 in Imperata cylindrica
var. major is typical of the corresponding region with other higher plants.
Acknowledgement: The project was granted by the National Science Council of Taiwan.
Figure 1. Nucleotide sequence of a 5.8S rRNA gene and of internal transcribed spacer from Imperata cylindrica var. major. Positions of rRNA
genes, i.e. the 3
end of 18S rRNA gene, 5.8S rRNA gene, and the 5
end of 26S rRNA gene, are boxed. The ITS1 is located between 18S rRNA
gne and 5.8S rRNA gene, and ITS2 between 5.8S rRNA gene and 26S rRNA gene.
