Abstract

Two clones of Arabidopsis thaliana possessing high sequence identity to the yeast gene encoding ribosomal (r) protein L3 were isolated by heterologous DNA hybridization. The coding regions of these two clones have approx. 63% amino acid (aa) sequence identity to the yeast L3 r-protein and 85% aa sequence identity to each other. Both genes are expressed in shoots. The presence of two divergent genes in A. thaliana raises the possibility that the gene products participate in the formation of functionally distinct ribosomes.
