The nucleotide sequence of a cloned satellite DNA from Antilocapra americana (American pronghorn antelope) is presented. The 1477-bp satellite is composed of degenerate 31-bp sub-repeats which are very similar in sequence to those of the major satellite DNAs from cattle and sheep. The sub-repeat sequence is more degenerate and variable in pronghorn than it is in cattle or sheep. The sequence is organized in the pronghorn genome in multicopy tandem arrays.
