Telomeric DNA allocation in chromosomes of common shrew (Sorex araneus, eulipotyphla)


Recently, we displayed an Iberian shrew species (Sorex granarius) with telomere structures unusual for mammals. Long telomeres on the short acrocentric arms contain an average of 213 kb of telomere repeats, whereas the other chromosomal ends have only 3.8 kb (Zhdanova et al., 2005; 2007). However, it is not clear whether these telomeres are typical for all… (More)
