A family of four satellite DNAs has been characterized in the genome of the bivalve mollusc, Donax trunculus. All share HindIII sites, a similar monomer length of about 160 base pairs (bp), and the related oligonucleotide motifs GGTCA and GGGTTA, repeated six to 15 times within the repetitive units. The motif GGTCA is common to all members of the satellite family. It is present in three of them in both orientations, interspersed within nonrepetitive DNA sequences. The hexanucleotide GGGTTA… CONTINUE READING
