We have characterized a family of tRNA-derived short interspersed repetitive elements (SINEs) in the tobacco genome. Members of this family of SINEs, designated TS, have a composite structure and include a region structurally similar to a rabbit tRNA(Lys), a tRNA-unrelated region, and a TTG repeat of variable length at the 3' end. Southern blot hybridization, together with a search of the GenBank data base, showed that various plants belonging to the families Solanaceae and Convolvulaceae… CONTINUE READING
