A very large repetitive element (StarkB, 22.8 kb) is present in the maize B chromosome, presumably not organized as tandem arrays. Results of the current study are contrary to this notion. Out of eighteen StarkB-carrying sequences, nine were the expected internal fragment of StarkB, and nine others were fragments spanning two StarkB elements. One of the two StarkB components, GrandeB, was flanked in all clones with identical target sequences, as opposed to other Grandes that are associated with… CONTINUE READING
