Abstract

The messenger-like poly(A)-containing RNA associated with the mitochondria of both mammalian (human and hamster) and insect (Drosophila and mosquito) cell cultures is examined. This RNA is resolved on polyacrylamide gels into approximately eight apparently stable and distinct species. The pattern for each cell type is unique, but the molecular weights represented appear to be very similar. The poly(A) segment attached to this RNA [as well as the much longer poly(A) attached to mRNA of nuclear origin] is nearly identical in size in the mammalian and insect cells.
