A highly repetitive, centromerically localized DNA sequence (PR1) has been isolated from the genomic DNA of two species of pigeon (Columba livia andC. palumbus). PR1 is approximately 900 bp long. It includes a sequence that is similar to the CENP-B box of mammals. It represents about 5% of the genome inC. livia and 2% inC. palumbus. In both species, tandem arrays ofPR1 form part of larger repeating units. The organization of PR1 repeats and the larger repeating units is strikingly different in… CONTINUE READING
