A novel repetitive DNA element has been isolated from the Leishmania infantum genome. The 348 bp long element, designated LiR3, was found to be located downstream from the 3'-end of the ribosomal RNA (rRNA) genes. This LiR3 element has short sequences with potential to form stem-loop structures similar to those of the bacterial rho-independent transcriptional terminators. Given both the structural features and the genomic location of this element we searched for a possible functional… CONTINUE READING
