Abstract: The sequences of the 5 S rRNAs isolated from 8 ascomycete species belonging to the genera Aspergillus, Penicillium, Acremonium and Candida are reported. Two of the examined strains each yielded a mixture of 3 slightly different 5 S RNAs, which were individually sequenced after fractionation. A previously published sequence for Aspergillus nidulans 5 S RNA was found to contain errors. Reconstruction of an evolutionary tree based on 5 S RNA sequences showed that the 16 presently examined ascomycetes form three clusters. The same threefold partition can be observed in the secondary structure pattern, each cluster showing a slightly different variant of the general 5-helix model for 5 S rRNA (De Wachter, Chen and Vandenberghe (1982) Biochimie 64, 311-329), and different sets of secondary structure equilibrium forms in helices C and E of the aforementioned model.
