Digestion of genomic DNA from seven species of Tribolium (Coleoptera) with Sau3AI, TaqI and ClaI restriction enzymes shows the presence of remarkable amounts of highly repetitive DNA sequences in these species. In Tribolium freemani the sequences are tandemly repeated with a satellite monomer of 166 bp, A-T rich (70.5 per cent), representing 31 per cent of the total genome and located in centromeric chromosome areas as demonstrated by in situ hybridization. The sequence has the potential to… CONTINUE READING
