The circular extrachromosomal ribosomal DNA (rDNA) element of Naegleria fowleri strain LEE was molecularly cloned and fully sequenced. The element comprises 15,786bp and contains a single copy of the organism's rDNA cistron. The nonribosomal sequence contains five potential open reading frames, two large direct repeat sequences, and numerous smaller repeated-sequence regions.
