Microsatellite evolution--a reciprocal study of repeat lengths at homologous loci in cattle and sheep.

Abstract:

The application of microsatellites in evolutionary studies requires an understanding of the patterns governing their evolution in different species. The finding that homologous microsatellite loci are longer, i.e., containing more repeat units, in human and in other primates has been taken as evidence for directional microsatellite evolution and for a difference in the rate of evolution between species. However, it has been argued that this finding is an inevitable consequence of biased selec...
