Abstract

The nucleotide sequence of nuclear 5S RNA of mouse cells was determined. The 5S RNA is 117 nucleotides long with one mole each of m32,2,7G, Gm, Am and Cm, two moles of Um, and three moles of ψ as modified nucleosides, and it is rich in uridylate residues (about 36 %). The 5′-terminal hexanucleotide-containing cap structure, m32,2,7GpppAm-Um-A-C-U-, is identical with that of U1 RNA. This RNA contains sequences complementary to the terminal sequences of the introns of heterogeneous nuclear RNAs.
