Minisatellites have been found in association with important features of human genome biology such as gene regulation, chromosomal fragile sites, and imprinting. Our knowledge of minisatellite biology has greatly increased in the past 10 years owing to the identification and careful analysis of human hypermutable minisatellites, experimental models in yeast, and recent in vitro studies of minisatellite recombination properties. In parallel, minisatellites have been put forward as potential… CONTINUE READING
