|Abstract:||We present here a characterization of the telomeric and subtelomeric regions of Trypanosoma cruzi chromosomes, using three types of recombinants: cosmids from a genomic library, clones obtained by a vector-adaptor protocol, and a recombinant fragment cloned by a Bal31 trimming protocol. the last nine nucleotides of the T. cruzi overhang are 5'-GGGTTAGGG-3', and there are from 9 to 50 copies of the hexameric repeat 5'-TTAGGG-3', followed by a 189-bp junction sequence common to all recombinants. the subtelomeric region is made of sequences associated with the gp85/sialidase gene family, and/or sequences derived from SIRE, a retrotransposon-like sequence, and also the retrotransposon L1Tc. We discuss the possible implications of this genome organization. (C) 1999 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.|
