In the red flour beetle Tribolium castaneum the major TCAST satellite DNA accounts for 35% of the genome and encompasses the pericentromeric regions of all chromosomes. Because of the presence of transcriptional regulatory elements and transcriptional activity in these sequences, TCAST satellite DNAs also have been proposed to be modulators of gene(More)
The complete mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) genome of the Eunapius subterraneus (Porifera, Demospongiae), a unique stygobitic sponge, was analyzed and compared with previously published mitochondrial genomes from this group. The 24,850 bp long mtDNA genome is circular with the same gene composition as found in other metazoans. Intergenic regions (IGRs) comprise(More)
Major satellites of species in the genus Pimelia comprise large portions of their genomes and belong to seven major satellite families which all originate from a common ancestral sequence. Here we present the results of comprehensive screening of 26 Pimelia species belonging to three distinct geographic groups (Ibero-Balearic, African and Canary Islands)(More)
