Abstract

Summary: The recent discovery of the phenomenon that some prokaryotes fragment their 23S rRNA during post-transcriptional processing of precursor rRNA has been shown to be particularly prevalent among strains and species of . Some strains of cleaved 23S rRNA at multiple sites producing several fragments. The cleavage patterns of 23S rRNA differed among strains and sometimes among the rRNA operons in the same strain. of 23S rRNA was not observed in strains of the closely related species . Fragmentation of 23S rRNA occurred in and but the cleavage pattern was not as diverse as that demonstrated in . Introduction of cleavage sites into precusor 23S rRNA of is probably a recent evolutionary event.
