  • See supplemental Figure 2 for the Southern blot images.

  • a A smear of background hybridization was observed.

  • b One fragment hybridized much more strongly than the others. This was probably the fragment from which the probe was derived.

  • c Hybridization in M was to weakly hybridizing secondary fragments.

  • d The most strongly hybridizing fragment was clearly not present in M.

  • e rDNA telomere.
