Intragenic mapping of the Neurospora pyrimidine-3 locus by functional deletions
On the basis of complementation between polar and non-polar pyrimidine-3 mutants of Neurospora crassa, a physical linear order of the polar mutants within the locus is derived. The basis of this derivation is that a polar mutant is an intragenic functional deletion extending from the site of the mutation to the translationally distal end of the locus.
