  1. Species-specific BAC clones yielding duplicated signals around the ENC. Their specific pericentromeric location, confirmed by FISH, was derived by their BAC-end(s) mapping. *One BAC-end of these BACs is entirely composed of alphoid repeats. The FISH signal, however, was not centromeric, indicating that the alphoid content of the BAC was marginal. See Figure 1 for examples.
