AbstractHighly repetitive DNA sequences constitute a significant portion of most eukaryotic genomes, raising questions about their evolutionary origins and amplification dynamics. In this study, a novel chicken repetitive DNA family, the HinfI repeat, was characterized. The basic repeating unit of this family displays a uniform length of 770 bp, which was defined by the recognition site of HinfI. The HinfI repeat was specifically localized in the pericentric region of chromosome 4 by fluorescence in situ hybridization and constitutes 0.51% of the chicken genome. Interestingly, a chicken repeat 1 (CR1) element has been identified within this basic repeating unit. Like other CR1 elements, this CR1 element also displays typical retrotransposition characteristics, including a highly conserved 3′ region and a badly truncated 5′ end. This direct evidence from sequence analysis, together with our Southern blot results, suggests that the HinfI repeat may originate from a unique region containing a retrotransposed CR1 element. © 2006 NRC.
