Telomere terminating with centromere-specific repeats is closely associated with a transposon derived gene in Chironomus pallidivittatus

Abstract

We provide evidence that centromere-specific 155 bp DNA repeats terminate one pair of telomeres at the telocentric, left end of the short fourth chromosome in Chironomus pallidivittatus. Earlier evidence indicated that all other telomeres are terminated by 340 bp telomere-specific repeats. DNA that borders the 155 bp repeat contains a transcriptionally… (More)
