For a lab class on DNA cloning and sequencing, I have had students clone
random(?) fragments of the Arabidopsis genomes (plastid and mitochondrial
included).  One of these random clones contained the imperfect tandem
repeat mentioned in the recent query.  The repeat was adjacent to a member
of the major class of Arabidopsis repeated elements.  The sequence is
GenBank/EMBL accession no. M83786.  The imperfection of the repeats can be
illustrated by writing the sequence like this:
GGATC
CGTTCTCAAA
GGATCTGATT
GGATCATCT
GGATCTCTT
GGATCA
GGATCGG
GGATC
