We provide evidence that a chromosome end in the dipteran Chironomus pallidivittatus contains 340-bp tandem repeats reaching the extreme terminus of the chromosome. After adding synthetic oligonucleotide tails to DNA extracted from the microdissected right end of the fourth chromosome, we could demonstrate that the blocks of repeats were tailed at only one end, the chromosome terminus, the interior of the arrays being unavailable for tailing. Using PCR, we furthermore showed that the added… CONTINUE READING
