Insertion and amplification of a DNA sequence in satellite DNA of Cucumis sativus L. (cucumber)

Abstract

Another satellite DNA repeat (type IV) in the genome of Cucumis sativus (cucumber) was found and investigated with respect to DNA sequence, methylation, and evolution. This satellite shows a repeat length of 360 bp and a GC-content of 47%. The repeats of type IV are highly conserved among each other. Evidence for CG and CNG methylation is presented. By… (More)
