Copia-like Homology to the RAPD markers obtained male specific sequences (MADC3 and MADC4). FISH using MADC3 and MADC4 as probes detected numerous intense signals on the Y chromosome as well as dispersed signals on all chromosomes, and there were no extensive differences between the copia-like retrotransposon distribution on the Y chromosome and other chromosomes.
LINE-CS Found in male-associated DNA sequence (MADC1) and its flanking sequence, strongly homologous to LINE-like retrotransposons. 100 to 200 copies of the LINE located in tandem on the Y chromosome. Represented in the X chromosome and in the autosomes too, but their concentration at the end of Y chromosome is particularly high.
