This paper describes a species specific satellite DNA family (pSsP216) of Drosophila subsilvestris, a palearctic species of the D. obscura group. The pSsP216 family consists of tandemly arranged 216 bp repetitive units that are predominantly localized on B chromosomes. These chromosomes appear in variable numbers in the karyotype of this species. Some pSsP216 repeats can also be detected in the centromeric heterochromatin of the acrocentric A chromosomes. Two strains, one with and the other… CONTINUE READING
