tetranucleotide

tet·ra·nu·cle·o·tide

(tet'ră-nū'klē-ō-tīd),
A compound of four nucleotides; previously thought to represent the actual structure of nucleic acid (tetranucleotide theory).

The eight loci analyzed include six di-nucleotide repeats (Sauro 2A5, Sauro 2F5, Sauro 7A9, Sauro 10H2, Sauro 13B12, and Sauro 18A4), one tri-nucleotide repeat (Sauro 1G8), and one tetranucleotide repeat (Sauro 9B10).
As far as repeat motifs of SSR loci, the dinucleotide was the most abundant repeat type, followed by hexanucleotide, trinucleotide, tetranucleotide, and pentanucleotide (Fig.
At a protein level, this tetranucleotide deletion results in a disruption of the amino acid reading frame that causes arginine to be replaced by phenylalanine at position 358, with a resulting premature stop codon at position 373, p.
The search in PAL_FINDER was continued until 45 dinucleotide loci and 5 tetranucleotide loci were discovered, requiring screening of 286,240 reads and the whole database (5,874,294 reads) for dinucleotides and tetranucleotides, respectively.
