Evolution of Tom, 297, 17.6 and rover retrotransposons in Drosophilidae species
LTR retrotransposons are the most abundant transposable elements in Drosophila and are believed to have contributed significantly to genome evolution. Different reports have shown that many LTRExpand

Multiple invasions of Errantivirus in the genus Drosophila
Aiming to contribute to the knowledge of the evolutionary history of Errantivirus, a phylogenetic analysis of the env gene sequences of Errantivirus gypsy, gtwin, gypsy2, gypsy3, gypsy4 and gypsy6Expand

Mar, a MITE family of hAT transposons in Drosophila
BackgroundMiniature inverted-repeat transposable elements (MITEs) are short, nonautonomous DNA elements flanked by subterminal or terminal inverted repeats (TIRs) with no coding capacity. MITEs wereExpand

Genetic analyses of archival specimens of the Atlantic sturgeon Acipenser sturio L., 1758
Genetic variability was analysed in Acipenser sturio L., 1758 and Acipenser oxyrinchus oxyrinchus Mitchill, 1815 using variation in the D-loop region of mtDNA and a number of microsatellites (nuclearExpand

hosimary: a new hAT transposon group involved in horizontal transfer
A PCR screening approach was used to search for sequences homologous to a previously described hAT transposon found in Drosophilasimulans and Drosophila sechellia, named here as hosimary. In thisExpand

The Drosophila flavopilosa species group (Diptera, Drosophilidae)
The D. flavopilosa group encompasses an ecologically restricted set of species strictly adapted to hosting flowers of Cestrum (Solanaceae). This group presents potential to be used as a model to theExpand

harrow: new Drosophila hAT transposons involved in horizontal transfer
In this study we characterize the transposable elements harrow, which belong to the hAT superfamily of DNA transposons. Searches for harrow sequences were performed in 65 Drosophilidae species,Expand

Failure to confirm previous identification of two putative museum specimens of the Atlantic sturgeon, Acipenser sturio, as the Adriatic sturgeon, A. naccarii
Abstract MtDNA analyses were employed to examine the species identification of three preserved museum sturgeon specimens from the River Guadalquivir, two of which were originally described asExpand

New aspects of an old discussion - phylogenetic relationships of Ammotragus and Pseudois within the subfamily Caprinae based on comparison of the 12S rDNA sequences
A mitochondrial 12S rDNA fragment was amplified by PCR and directly sequenced from eight members of the Caprinae (Ammotragus lervia, Capra aegagrus, Ovis ammon, O. musimon, O. nivicola, O.Expand
