Figure 19

The combined plot of the normalized number N0( l ) ≡ NXY (l)/NXY (1) of repeats for six groups of dimeric tandem repeats in human genome averaged over analogous repeats in each group: (AA) 1 and (TT) l (Ο); (TA) l and (AT) l (Δ); (CA) l ,(AC) l ,(TG) l and (GT) l (■); (GA) l ,(AG) l , (TC) l and(CT) l (◊); (CC) l and (GG) l (● ); (GC) l and (CG) l (). Semi-logarithmic plot for coding DNA (A), double-logarithmic plot for coding DNA (B), semi-logarithmic plot for noncoding DNA (C), and doublelogarithmic plot for noncoding DNA (D). For clarity, we separate plots for these six groups by shifting them by a factor of 100 on the ordinate. The values of μ for six groups of repeats in (D) are 3.6, 3.3, 3.2, 4.1, 6.7, and 5.4 from top to bottom, fitting range is l > 5. The values of μ for strongly bonded repeats GC,CG and CC,GG are significantly larger than for other repeats. (From ref. 107.)
