Abstract

Eukaryotic genomes contain far more DNA than needed for coding proteins. Some of these additional DNA sequences comprise non-coding repetitive DNA sequences, mostly satellite DNAs and also transposable elements usually located at the heterochromatic regions of chromosomes. Satellite DNAs consist of ...

Abstract

The Rattini (Muridae, Murinae) includes the biologically important model species Rattus norvegicus (RNO) and represents a group of rodents that are of clinical, agricultural and epidemiological importance. We present a comparative molecular cytogenetic investigation of ten Rattini species...

Abstract

Repetitive DNA in the mammalian genome is a valuable record and marker for evolution, providing information about the order and driving forces related to evolutionary events. The evolutionarily young 1.709 satellite IV DNA family is present near the centromeres of many chromosomes in the Bovidae....

Abstract

We have analysed and mapped physically the satellite I, III (subunits pvu and sau) and IV DNA sequences in cattle using in-situ hybridization. Four breeds were analysed including individuals with a chromosome number of 2n=60 and individuals with the widespread t(1;29) in the homozygous (2n=58) and...
