Tandem repeats in GenBank primate nucleotide sequences annotated as protein coding regions are analyzed. It is found that only trinucleotide repeats show repeat enrichment well above the threshold of statistical significance. The statistics are improved by a simultaneous search for repeats on both the amino acid and nucleotide levels. The results of the analyses of natural sequences are interpreted by comparing them with the results of the computer simulation of the model dedicated to protein… CONTINUE READING
