A Group IIC-Type Intron Interrupts the rRNA Methylase Gene of Geobacillus stearothermophilus Strain 10.

Authors: Moretz SE, Lampson BC
Group IIC introns insert next to the stem-loop structure of rho-independent transcription terminators, thus avoiding intact genes. The insertion sites of 17 copies of the G.st.I1 intron from Geobacillus stearothermophilus were compared. One copy of the intron was found to interrupt an open reading frame (ORF) encoding an rRNA methylase.
