Kinetoplast DNA minicircles from various species of trypanosomes are heterogeneous in nucleotide sequence to various degrees but in all instances contain a conserved sequence region of 100 to 200 base pairs present in one, two, or four copies per minicircle. Comparison of the conserved sequence regions of minicircles from eight species of trypanosomes revealed a common sequence motif consisting of three conserved sequence blocks (CSBs) present in the same order and with similar spacing in all… CONTINUE READING
