"Major minisatellite loci" detected by minisatellite clones 33.6 and 33.15 correspond to the cognate loci D1S111 and D7S437.

G. Chimini et al. (1989, Genomics 5: 316-324) have recently reported that the two multilocus DNA fingerprinting probes 33.6 and 33.15 each detect a single major site in the human genome, at 1q23 and 7q35-q36, respectively, and speculate that these sites represent particularly large loci homologous to these probes. However, the human minisatellite loci… CONTINUE READING
