Regular Higher Order Repeat Structures in Beetle Tribolium castaneum Genome


Higher order repeats (HORs) containing tandems of primary and secondary repeat units (head-to-tail "tandem within tandem pattern"), referred to as regular HORs, are typical for primate alpha satellite DNAs and most pronounced in human genome. Regular HORs are known to be a result of recent evolutionary processes. In non-primate genomes mostly so called… (More)
