The pSV family showed an unusual conservation of restriction sites reflecting homogenization of the analyzed repeats. Members of the family are organized as tandem repeats as revealed by PCR and sequencing of dimeric units. The pSV satellite occurs in large intercalary arrays which are present on all chromosome arms of sugar beet. The pSV sequence family is present in different abundance in the sections Beta, Corollinae and Nanae but is not detectable by Southern hybridization in the section Procumbentes. The pDRV family is characterized by an interspersed genomic organization. The sequence is detectable in all sections of the genus and is amplified in species of the section Beta but was also detected, although at lower abundance, in the remaining three sections. Fluorescent in situ hybridization has shown that the pDRV sequence family is dispersed over all chromosomes of the sugar beet complement with some regions of clustering and centromeric depletion.||ISSN:||0040-5752||DOI:||10.1007/s001220050945||Rights:||© Springer||Type:||Article||Affiliation :||University of Kiel
