Sažetak
The intriguing diversity of highly abundant satellite repeats found even among closely related species can result from processes leading to dramatic changes in copy number of a particular sequence in the genome and not from rapid accumulation of mutations. To test this hypothesis, we investigated the distribution of the PRAT satellite DNA family, a highly abundant major satellite in the coleopteran species Palorus ratzeburgii, in eight species belonging to the related genera (Tribolium, Tenebrio, Latheticus), the subfamily (Pimeliinae) and the family (Chrysomelidae). Dot blot analysis and PCR assay followed by Southern hybridization revealed that the PRAT satellite, in the form of low-copy number repeats, was present in all tested species. The PRAT satellite detected in the species Pimelia elevata has been sequenced, and compared with previously cloned PRAT monomers from Palorus ratzeburgii and Palorus subdepressus. Although the two Palorus species diverged at least 7 Myr ago, and the subfamily Pimeliinae separated from the genus Palorus 50-60 Myr ago, all PRAT clones exhibit high mutual homology, with average variability relative to the common consensus sequence of 1.3%. The presence of ancestral mutations found in PRAT clones from all three species as well as the absence of species diagnostic mutations illustrate extremely slow sequence evolution. This unexpectedly high conservation of PRAT satellite DNA sequence might be induced by a small bias of turnover mechanisms favoring the ancestral sequence in the process of molecular drive.
