Excuse me, but what does this abbreviation and "kbp" stand for? It is not mentioned in the article. —Onore Baka Sama(speak | stalk) 14:22, 25 October 2012 (UTC)

Mbp = mega base pairs

kbp = kilo base pairs

they are unit of DNA length. (talk) 21:27, 7 June 2013 (UTC)


The paragraph on PAR3 is very technical compared to the rest of the article (which is actually very well written) and uses abbreviations like XTR that are not explained anywhere else. I strongly suggest someone to update this part and maybe double check the reference and recent research on this topic. Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:13, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

The paragraph is an incomplete copy from an article abstract. It was created on Sept 25th 2013, probably by the author of the abstract himself - who logged in with an IP address and never made any other contributions. I don't consider this a reliable source.

The scientific community does not currently recognize a PAR3 region, please see: The paragraph should be removed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Meisterflexer (talkcontribs) 16:16, 6 November 2014 (UTC)
