Primer sequences : RUBISCO rbcLX region

Rudi et al. (1998) published the following primers for amplification of the rbcLX region in Cyanobacteria:
CW: 5'-CGTAGCTTCCGGTGGTATCCACGT-3'
CX: 5'-GGGGCAGGTAAGAAAGGGTTTCGTA-3'

The same authors provide an additional primer designated for sequencing of Nostoc spp.:
DN: 5'-TTGAAGCAATGGATACCGTCTGA-3'
