The chromosome localization of two human multisequence families, rDNA and β-satellite (β-sat) DNA, was determined in humans and apes using double color fluorescence in-situ hybridization. Both DNA probes showed a distinct hybridization pattern with species-specific variations in hominoids. The stepwise differentiation of the integration, amplification, multilocalization, and reduction of the DNAs were observed interspecifically through the seven species examined. The stepwise events allowed us… CONTINUE READING
