Localization and polymorphism of a chromosome 12-specific alpha satellite DNA sequence.

The isolation and localization of a chromosome 12-specific alpha satellite DNA sequence, p alpha 12H8, is described. This clone contains a complete copy of the 1.4-kb HindIII higher-order repeat present within the alpha satellite array on chromosome 12. The specificity of p alpha 12H8 was demonstrated by in situ hybridization and Southern blot analysis of a… CONTINUE READING
