Two clones of a new family of tandemly repeated DNA sequences have been isolated from a maize random genomic DNA library. MR68 is 410 bp, representing a monomeric unit and MR77 is 1222 bp, containing three units. The copy number was estimated to be about 3000 per 1C maize genome. Its methylation pattern was also determined. Fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) indicates that the sequence is located on the subtelomeric region of the long arm of chromosomes 3 and 6, as well as on the satellite of chromosome 6.
