Introduction. Plasmids of eukaryotes have long been a neglected subject. Because they were initially found only in Saccharomyces cerevisiae (Sinclair et al. 1967), they were considered to be genetic elements of limited distribution with a cryptic function. Subsequently plasmids were detected in a plant, Zea mays (Pring et al. 1977), and in a filamentous fungus, Podospora anserina (Stahl et al. 1978). The fungal plasmid turned out to be a circular molecule, as expected in accordance with the generally accepted plasmid configuration (ccc = covalently closed circular). The corn plasmid, however, was the first linear plasmid to be described, though it was to prove antecedent to many others. Circular plasmids of eukaryotes have been reviewed extensively (see Esser ct al. 1986). Linear plasmids, many of which have been detected and analysed more recently, have yet to be reviewed in respect of their common properties and their potential application for research.
