A genomic DNA library of Anopheles aquasalis Curry was screened for clones that hybridized more intensely to DNA from A. aquasalis than to DNA from A. benarrochi Gabaldon, Cova Garcia, and Lopez, A. konderi Galvao and Damasceno, A. nuneztovari Gabaldon cytotypes A, B, and C, A. oswaldoi (Peryassu), A. rangeli Gabaldon, Cova Garcia, and Lopez, or A. trinkae Faran. Two specific clones (2.5 kilobasepairs [kbp] and 3.0 kbp) from A. aquasalis were isolated. Both A. aquasalis-specific clones were… Expand

TLDR
The intergenic spacer of the ribosomal DNA of the crustacean, Daphnia pulex, is 4819 bp in length, and contains two non-repetitive regions separated by two repetitive regions, which are very similar to the promoter sequences found in repeated elements in the IGS of other organisms. Expand
