in the past few weeks i have cloned a piece of tobacco dna which has one
striking feature: it contains three repeated sequences within a stretch
of about 100 bp. I have compared this repeat with the databases: however,
nothing obvious came up. perhaps anybody out there could help ? I would be
especially pleased with info on how to attack the databases with such a small
sequence: any useful ideas ?
the repeat is:
especially the AAAATTTT box looks familiar (several co-workers said
this also) and I wondered whether any of the bells in your brains will also
start clanging if you see it.Is it a restriction site ? a binding site ? hmmm...
any suggestions welcome.
thanx ! clemens suter-crazzolara
