Three cloned human DNA fragments obtained from a fibroblast genomic DNA were sequenced and identified as containing members of the well-known 300-bp Alu family of interspersed, middle-repetitive DNA sequences. One of these cloned DNA fragments, p16, also contains members of a new repetitive DNA family, which repeats several thousand times in the human… CONTINUE READING
