Two SINE families associated with equine microsatellite loci

Two SINE families associated with equine microsatellite loci BLAST searches of 61 equine microsatellite sequences revealed two related families of retroposons. The first family included seven markers, all of which showed significant homology to the Equine Repetitive Element-1 (ERE-1) Short Interspersed Nucleotide Element (SINE) sequence. Length of homology ranged from 76 to 171 bases with identities to the ERE-1 consensus sequence ranging from 71% to 83%. The second family referred to as Equine Repetitive Element-2 (ERE-2) has a consensus sequence that showed homology to ERE-1 over approximately 60 bases. These 60 bases comprised subunit I. Sequence comparisons for the two retroposons led to the identification of a subunit II, subunit III, as well as the tRNAser subunit. The subunit structure of ERE-1 was tRNAser-I-II. By contrast, the subunit structure of ERE-2 was I-III-III. The nine markers related to ERE-2 showed homology lengths ranging from 84 to 163 bases with identities ranging from 75% to 99%.
