Two BamHI families of repeated sequences were characterized from the genome of the Italian smooth newt, Triturus vulgaris meridionalis (Amphibia, Urodela). The first family, which is divided into subfamilies, consists of tandemly arranged arrays whose basic repeat is around 398 bp long; these arrays are dispersed throughout the entire chromosome sets of the various species of Triturus tested. Moreover the family is widely conserved among Salamandridae, being detected by genomic DNA blotting of Notophthalmus viridescens, Taricha granulosa, Salamandrina terdigitata and Euproctus platycephalus. The second BamHI family is represented by a cloned sequence of 419 bp, which is dispersed in the chromosome set of several species of Triturus. The sequence is also conserved in S. terdigitata and in E. platycephalus but is not detectable in N. viridescens or T. granulosa. The cloned sequence is most probably only part of a longer unit interspersed within the Triturus genome.

Abstract

Two BamHI families of repeated sequences were characterized from the genome of the Italian smooth newt, Triturus vulgaris meridionalis (Amphibia, Urodela). The first family, which is divided into subfamilies, consists of tandemly arranged arrays whose basic repeat is around 398 bp long; these arrays are dispersed throughout the entire chromosome sets of the various species of Triturus tested. Moreover the family is widely conserved among Salamandridae, being detected by genomic DNA blotting of Notophthalmus viridescens, Taricha granulosa, Salamandrina terdigitata and Euproctus platycephalus. The second BamHI family is represented by a cloned sequence of 419 bp, which is dispersed in the chromosome set of several species of Triturus. The sequence is also conserved in S. terdigitata and in E. platycephalus but is not detectable in N. viridescens or T. granulosa. The cloned sequence is most probably only part of a longer unit interspersed within the Triturus genome.
