Summary

Genetic loci for 16S ribosomal RNA (rRNA) on the Escherichia coli chromosome were determined using the K-sequence, a characteristic oligonucleotide of strain K12, as a genetic marker. Oligonucleotide analyses of 16S rRNA from various recombinants between strain K12 and strain B(H) showed that the loci for 16S rRNA containing the K-sequence were near the metB locus which was at 77 min. on the chromosome map.
