Dinucleotide microsatellites are useful for gene mapping projects. Depending upon definition of conservation, published estimates of dinucleotide microsatellite conservation levels vary dramatically (30% to 100%). This study focused on well-characterized genes that contain microsatellites in the human genome. The objective was to examine the feasibility of developing microsatellite markers within genes on the basis of the assumption of microsatellite conservation across distantly related… CONTINUE READING
