    • Abstract


      The chromosomal localization and genomic organization of three cloned repetitive DNA fragments (viz., H-76, H-61, and H-19) isolated from theAedes albopictus genome have been examined inAe. albopictus and six otherAedes species:Ae. aegypti, Ae. seatoi, Ae. flavopictus, Ae. polynesiensis, Ae. alcasidi andAe. katherinensis. The results fromin situ and Southern hybridization analyses show that the sequences homologous to cloned repetitive DNA fragments are dispersed throughout the genome in each species. The sequences homologous to these cloned repetitive DNA fragments are also found inHaemagogus equinus, Tripteroides bambusa andAnopheles quadrimaculatus and are dispersed in their genomes. Data indicate divergence in the amount and the structural organization of sequences homologous to these cloned fragments among mosquito species.
