DNA isolated from 48-h germinated rice embryos and cut with restriction endonuclease BamHI was inserted at the BamHI site in plasmid pBR322 and cloned in Escherichia coli HB101. Recombinantion of DNA-contg. clones were selected by their resistance to ampicillin and sensitivity to tetracycline and identified by colony hybridization to homologous probes comprising 32P-labeled RNA from 18-h germinated rice embryos. Two clones contg. genes for 9-12 S poly(A)- RNA, which was enriched in histone messengers, were identified. One of the clones contained an insert of 6.64 kilobases. RNAs that hybridized with this insert were translated into $H_2A4, 4H_2B$, and $H_4$ histones. Thus, the inserted DNA contains these genes.
