I don't see any homopolymeric tracts in the sequence.
Two questions: what vector aare you using, and do you have any homopolymeric tracts towards the beginning of your sequence in the reverse stretch?
H. pylori has 46 genes that contain homopolymeric runs of nucleotides or dinucleotide repeats that are prone to frequent length changes as a consequence of stuttering errors during replication.
The stomach ulcer bacterium Helicobacter pylori is a good example of how homopolymeric tracts can enable quasi-directed evolution of particular genes.
In DNA footprinting analyses using the C-module of retrotransposon TRE5-A as probe, two CbfA binding sites have been determined that contain 14-22 homopolymeric thymidines
Due to sequencing errors***, often an extra base is added or deleted in homopolymeric runs (e.g.,
