The Evolution of Amino Acid Repeat Arrays in Plasmodium and Other Organisms

Abstract

Repeat arrays in protein-coding sequences were analyzed by a novel approach, based on analyzing the distribution of the pairwise proportion of nucleotide differences among units within a repeat array. The results showed that evidence of recent repeat array expansion was particularly characteristic of the repeat arrays of the malaria parasites (genus… (More)
