Mouse and human genomes contain hypervariable DNA regions consisting of tandem repeats of a short sequence referred to as minisatellites. This variation is thought to arise through processes such as unequal crossover or replication slippage. A mo-1 minisatellite probe comprising a 14-base pair repeat sequence reveals many polymorphic fragments even in DNA of BALB/c sublines. Oligonucleotide probes with single base substitution in the mo-1 have been synthesized and used for assessing sequence… CONTINUE READING
