Abstract

The SSU rRNA gene of the extremely thermophilic bacterium strain AZ3 B.1, encodes an rRNA containing four large inserts. A secondary structure model has been constructed which predicts that the inserts form large stem loop structures with a common sequence motif at the base of the helices. To date, these structures have only been detected in related, thermophilic organisms.
