    Notes: Summary Expression of the linear mitochondrial (mt) plasmid pClK1 of strain K of the ascomycete Claviceps purpurea was studied at the RNA and protein level. Using strand-specific probes two major transcripts were detected, corresponding to ORF1 and ORF2 of the plasmid, which most likely code for a DNA-polymerase and an RNA-polymerase, respectively. Primer extension experiments showed that both transcripts start at identical positions from opposite sides within the terminal inverted repeat (TIR). The initiation sequence corresponds to the proposed general mt initiation consensus-sequence. Conserved parts of the putative polymerase ORFs were expressed in an E. coli system and used to prepare antisera. In Western experiments the presence of corresponding proteins was demonstrated in a strain carrying plasmid pClK1, whereas a plasmid-free strain lacked these polypeptides. The sizes of these proteins are in good accordance with the sizes derived from the coding capacity of ORF1 and 2.
