High impact information on SATL1

  • The major component of centromeric heterochromatin in all chromosomes is Satl, an abundant satellite DNA with a basic repeat unit of 155 bp and an average A+T content (54%) [1].
  • Consequently, the overall phosphorylated histone H3 metaphase labelling resembles the distribution of Satl in the karyotype of O. longibracteatum [1].
