|Title:||Differential organization of a LINE-1 family in Indian pygmy field mice|
|Abstract:||Southern blot hybridization analysis of genomic DNAs digested with restriction endonuclease EcoR I and Ava II from Mus musculus domesticus, Mus booduga and Mus terricolor with a cloned repetitive DNA fragment of Mus booduga as a probe showed difference in restriction pattern of this DNA in these three species. Further Southern analysis of the BamH I digested genomic DNAs from these species hybridized with cloned DNA fragment as a probe and sequencing of the cloned DNA revealed that this 252 bp cloned DNA fragment is a part of BamHI repeat element of genus Mus and is 87 % homologous to the contiguous portion of the Mus musculus domesticus LlNE- 1 element. The species specific fragment pattern generated by different restriction endonucleases using this DNA as a probe revealed difference in the organization of LlNE- 1 repetitive element in the three species of genus Mus.|
