Frequent duplication and deletion events in the 5S RNA genes and the associated spacer regions of theTriticeae


The 5 S DNA units from 15 grasses in theTriticeae were analysed at the DNA sequence level. Four units carried duplications near the 3′-end of the 5 S RNA gene with 3 of the duplications centred on the same base pairs as a duplication previously reported byGerlach & Dyer. The fourth duplication was located 3′ downstream from the gene, in the spacer region… (More)
