Highly Repeated DNA

Facts | Interpretations | Further Info. | Other Pages

Fast reassociating DNA often consists of tandem highly repeated DNA.

Facts

  • In rye molecular chromosomes, members of some highly repeated sequence families separate direct repeats of other repeated sequence families. 
  • In the diagram below, each different pattern represents a different repeat family. The region consists only of highly repeated sequences. 
Satellite Sequence
I (AAT)n(AT)m
II (AACATAGAAT)n
III (378 bp sequence)n
IV 90% AAGAG and 10% AAGAGAG
