Abstract: In Podospora, senescence is assumed to be caused by the amplification of short sequences of the mitochondrial genome (sen-DNAs). We have characterized a 1100-bp-long mitochondrial DNA sequence which could be directly involved in the phenomenon. Indeed, by hybridization experiments, we show that this sequence is both present in all the sen-DNA molecules which originate from the beta region of the mitochondrial chromosome and rearranged in the mitochondrial genome of two mitochondrial mutants selected as resistant to senescence.Keywords: Ascomycota/*genetics/growth & development; Base Sequence; Chromosome Mapping; DNA Restriction Enzymes; DNA, Mitochondrial/*genetics; Gene Amplification; *Genes, Fungal; Mutation; Nucleic Acid Hybridization; Time Factors
