Highly abundant satellite DNA named TBREV is detected and characterized in the beetle Tribolium brevicornis (Insecta: Coleoptera). An outstanding peculiarity of the TBREV satellite monomer is its complex structure based on the two ∼470-bp-long subunits, inversely oriented within a 1061-bp-long monomer sequence. The proposed evolutionary history demonstrates a clear trend toward increased complexity and length of the TBREV satellite monomer. This tendency has been observed on three levels: first… CONTINUE READING
