Centromere 3 specific tandem repeat from Chironomus pallidivittatus


A 155-bp tandem repeat was previously reported to be present in all centromeric regions of the dipteran Chironomus pallidivittatus. We have now isolated a second centromere specific tandem repeat, 375 bp long. Two blocks were found of the new unit, differing in size, probably representing allelic forms. The repeat is present only in chromosome 3, bordering… (More)
