Cloning and sequencing of the rDNA gene family of the water buffalo (Bubalus bubalis)

C. Y. Pang, Deng, T. X., Tang, D. S., Yang, C. Y., Jiang, H., Yang, B. Z., and Liang, X. W., Cloning and sequencing of the rDNA gene family of the water buffalo (Bubalus bubalis), vol. 11, pp. 2878-2883, 2012.

The rDNA genes coding for ribosomal RNA in animals are complicated repeat sequences with high GC content. We amplified water buffalo rDNA gene sequences with the long and accurate (LA) PCR method, using LA Taq DNA polymerase and GC buffer, based on bioinformatic analysis of related organisms. The rDNA genes were found to consist of 9016 nucleotides, including three rRNA genes and two internal transcribed spacers (ITS), which we named 18S rRNA, ITS1, 5.8S rRNA, ITS2 and 28S rRNA.
