We have identified a 26.5 kb gene-rich duplication shared by human Xq28 and 16p11.1. Complete comparative sequence analysis of cosmids from both loci has revealed identical Xq28 and 16p11.1 genomic structures for both the human creatine transporter gene (SLC6A8) and five exons of the CDM gene (DXS1357E). Overall nucleotide similarity within the duplication(More)
The linear chromosomes and linear plasmids of Streptomyces are capped by terminal proteins (TPs) covalently bound to the 5' ends of the DNA. The TPs serve as primers for DNA synthesis that patches in the single-stranded gaps at the telomeres resulting from the bi-directional replication ('end patching'). Typical Streptomyces TPs, designated Tpgs, are(More)
