25 arrays, and represents one of the largest most widespread megasatellite DNA families. Conclusion This study represents the most comprehensive genome wide analysis of large tandem repeats in the human genome, and will serve as an important resource towards understanding the organization and copy number variation of these complex DNA families."/>

In situ hybridization of megasatellite DNA families. A) FISH using a 636 bp probe to the SST repeats from chromosome 4, which hybridizes to chromosome 19 (two arrays, Table 2d) and chromosome 4. B) FISH using a probe from the acro repeats from chromosome 4p11 (Table 2d), which hybridizes to pericentromeric regions of chromosomes 3 and 4, and the acrocentric chromosomes. C) FISH using a probe to the 3.5 kb repeats from the LTR arrays. Right- Additional acrocentric chromosomes from different individuals showing the variation in hybridization patterns.
