Sir, A peculiar type of repeated element has been detected in different prokaryotes and the occurrence of similar elements in very distant phylogenetic groups is being reported subsequent to genomic sequencing. A comparative study of these peculiar elements, aimed at determining the common structural and sequence features, as well as their phylogenetic distribution, will contribute to elucidate their biological relevance. These sequences share multiple features which are unique as a whole… Expand
