Satellite II and III DNA consensus sequences
Satellite type Consensus sequence
satellite II DNA [(atTCCATTcg)2 + (atg)1–2]n
satellite III DNA [(ATTCC)7–13 + (ATTcgggttg)1]n

Subscripts indicate the number of occurrences of a subsequence in the consensus sequence. The motif TCCATT is displayed in uppercase. For satellite III DNA, the motif also appears when two instances of the first subsequence are juxtaposed. Adapted from [30,31].
