A repetitive DNA sequence family from Xenopus laevis that has an unusual genomic organization has been identified. It has been shown by blot-hybridization that this sequence occurs in clusters containing variable numbers of the 388 base-pair repeating unit. There are approximately 500 such clusters in the genome, and each cluster has common flanking sequences. The number of tandem 388 base-pair repeats per cluster ranges from one to at least 15, with a mean of seven. Homologous sequences were… CONTINUE READING
