The comparison of SS rRNA gene sequence of Tetrahymena 1.7 with other species of genus Tetrahymena showed that the gene was highly conserved with the exception of few intragenic semi-conserved regions which are helpful in establishing the phylogenetic relationships among different members of genus Tetrahymena.
