Data from: Selection, periodicity and potential function for highly iterative Palindrome-1 (HIP1) in cyanobacterial genomes

Minli Xu, Jeffrey G. Lawrence & Dannie Durand
Highly Iterated Palindrome 1 (HIP1, GCGATCGC) is hyper-abundant in most cyanobacterial genomes. In some cyanobacteria, average HIP1 abundance exceeds one motif per gene. Such high abundance suggests a significant role in cyanobacterial biology. However, 20 years of study have not revealed whether HIP1 has a function, much less what that function might be. We show that HIP1 is 15-300 fold over-represented in genomes analysed. More importantly, HIP1 sites are conserved both within and between open...
