An in silico search for P-transposable-element-related sequences in the Drosophila melanogaster genome allowed us to detect sequences that are similar to P-element transposases. These sequences are located in the central region of 3.4-kb Hoppel elements, a class II transposon. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) analysis of the insertional polymorphism revealed(More)
Molecular domestication of a transposable element is defined as its functional recruitment by the host genome. To date, two independent events of molecular domestication of the P transposable element have been described: in the Drosophila obscura species group and in the Drosophila montium species subgroup. These P neogenes consist of stationary,(More)
