The vertebrate genome: isochores and chromosomal bands

The vertebrate genome: isochores and chromosomal bands

A discussion. The genome of warm-blooded vertebrates appears to comprise a 'palaeogenome', characterised by GC-poor isochores which have not changed in composition relative to the corresponding isochores of cold-blooded vertebrates, and a 'neogenome', characterised by isochores which have become GC-rich.

The human genome is made up of long DNA segments, the isochores, which are compositionally homogeneous and can be subdivided into a small number of families characterized by different G+C levels.

We showed that chro...

Two articles published 5 years ago concluded that the genome of the lizard Anolis carolinensis is an amniote genome without isochores. This claim was apparently contradicting previous results on the general presence of an isochore organization in...
