Abstract

Restriction fragment length polymorphisms (RFLPs) of rRNA genes of spp. were analyzed. A Southern analysis of chromosomal DNA digests with cloned rRNA gene probes revealed the presence of one locus for rRNA genes on chromosomal DNAs in , and and two loci in . The RFLPs of rRNA genes were characteristic for each sp. DNA probes cloned from flanking regions of the rRNA genes of avian hybridized either with only or with only the avian and ovine abortion strains of . The RFLPs of rRNA genes and the flanking regions provide suitable genetic markers for differentiation of spp.
