RELATIONSHIP OF MOUSE IMMUNOGLOBULIN GENES TO INVERTED REPETITIVE DNA SEQUENCES
The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship of immunoglobulin genes, more specifically the C regions, to the inverted repetitive sequences found in the mouse genome. Total mRNA as well as mRNA for light chain kappa was purified from mouse plasmacytoma MOPC 321 cells. Complementary DNA molecules were synthesized from the mRNA templates and hybridized to DNA fractionated on hydroxyapatite columns. This fractionation separates DNA according to the presence of inverted repetitive sequences which will be retained by hydroxyapatite while the remaining fraction will be unbound. The results obtained during the course of this investigation suggested the following conclusions. Firstly, it was shown that inverted sequences were not found within the transcribed DNA region. Secondly, inverted sequences are not found within the kappa gene. And finally, it was shown that the inverted sequences may not be representative of all the sequences found in MOPC 321 DNA.
