Sequence alignment of 189 monomers of the most abundant minisatellite of N. furzeri. The upper part shows a representative section of a ClustalW alignment of 189 monomers of the 77-nucleotide minisatellite of N. furzeri GRZ. Below, the deduced repeat consensus sequence and sequence variability are given based on all 189 monomers. Asterisks mark identical nucleotides, plus signs indicate one mismatch in 189 sequences. Numbers indicate nucleotide identities: 5 represents ≥50-60% identity for 189 sequences; 6 represents ≥60-70%; 7 represents ≥70-80%, 8 represents ≥80-90%; and 9 represents ≥90-100%.
