- ... A chromosome-specific satellite DNA from the South American fish species Leporinus obtusidens has been isolated and characterized. Sequence analysis and Southern hybridization studies indicate that the cloned 483-bp fragment is 60% AT rich and appears to comprise two diverged monomers. A highly variable low-copy number polymorphism was detected and, thus, this satellite DNA may serve as a valuable ...
