High impact information on GC

  • CpG islands associated with homologous genes from cold- and warm-blooded vertebrates were then compared by analyzing CpG frequencies, GC levels, HpaII sites, rare-cutter sites and G/C boxes (GGGGCGGGGC and closely related motifs) in sequences available in gene banks [1].

Associations of GC with chemical compounds

  • Genomes from warm-blooded vertebrates (man, mouse and chicken) are characterized by abundant CpG islands, whose frequency increases in DNA fractions of increasing % of guanine + cytosine; % G + C (GC), in parallel with the distribution of genes and CpG doublets [1].
