Only 5-6% of mammalian genomes are genes; the remainders are made up primarily of transposable elements and different types of simple sequence repeat (SSRs) (micro- and minisatellites and cryptic repeats), which tend to accumulate in organisms with larger genomes. SSRs are also found at the level of protein sequences and may or may not be encoded by SSRs at the DNA sequence level. Studies of proteins containing SSRs indicate that they tend to belong to particular functional classes… CONTINUE READING
