SST1 - large human satellite identified with SstI enzyme
A brief description of the entry. Suggestions for modification to this description can be submitted using the adjacent pencil icon.
SST1 represents ~1.5Kb of a ~2.5Kb tandemly repeating satellite found on human chromosomes 19 and 4, far from the centromere or telomere. When found outside of these chromosomes, they tend to be centromeric. A subsegment of SST1 can also be found at several sites in human at one terminus of a GSATII gamma satellite array.
A new moderately repetitive DNA sequence family of novel organization.

Number of matches to this model that meet the "Gathering" threshold and more stringent "Trusted" threshold. For each threshold, two numbers are shown: (1) the number of matches to this model after removing redundant hits to other models ("non-redundant"), and (2) the total number of matches above threshold, including those with better scoring matches to other models ("all hits").
The model is 1563 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 843.5. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
