Two distinct P element subfamilies, designated M-type and O-type, reside in the genome of D. bifasciata. PCR-screening of 65 Drosophila species revealed that only D. bifasciata and its closest relative D. imaii possess O-type elements. Outside the genus, O-type elements were detected in Scaptomyza pallida. Restriction analyses show that the general(More)
Distribution and variation of two P-element subfamilies designated M-type and O-type elements were investigated in Drosophila bifasciata (Db) and its relatives. PCR screening revealed that full-sized and internally deleted elements of both types occur in three geographic Db strains and in the related species, D. imaii (Di). Molecular analyses indicate(More)
A new P element subfamily, designated T-type, was found in the genomes of the three closely related species Drosophila ambigua, Drosophila obscura, and Drosophila tristis. The subfamily comprises both full-sized and internally deleted P elements. The T-type element of D. ambigua is longer than the canonical P elements owing to a 300-bp insertion in the 3'(More)
The complete sequence of the mitochondrial (mt) genome of Buteo buteo was determined. Its gene content and nucleotide composition are typical for avian genomes. Due to expanded noncoding sequences, Buteo possesses the longest mt genome sequenced so far (18,674 bp). The gene order comprising the control region and neighboring genes is identical to that of(More)
Intraspecific genetic diversity and phylogeography of Corvus corone was investigated using the mitochondrial (mt) control region as a molecular marker. A split into two distinct mt lineages was observed. One represents individuals from a wide geographic range spanning from England to the Russian Far East (Kamchatka), while the other one was found in the(More)
P elements of two different subfamilies designated as M- and O-type are thought to have invaded host species in the Drosophila obscura group via horizontal transmission from external sources. Sequence comparisons with P elements isolated from other species suggested that the horizontal invasion by the O-type must have been a rather recent event, whereas the(More)
Two distinct cytochrome b-like sequences were discovered in the genome of Podarcis sicula. One of them represents a nuclear copy of a mitochondrial sequence (numt-sic) differing by 14.3% from the authentic mitochondrial (mt) sequence obtained from the same individual. This numt, however, differs by only 2.7% from the mt sequence found in one population of(More)
DNA sequences of the mitochondrial nd6 gene and the non-repetitive part of the pseudo-control region (PsiCR) were isolated from 101 individuals to analyze the phylogenetic relationships among all buzzards of the genus Buteo and other buteonine genera. Comparisons of the two marker sequences indicate that the PsiCR evolved two times faster than the nd6 gene.(More)
The effect of receptor occupancy on insulin receptor endocytosis was examined in CHO cells expressing normal human insulin receptors (CHO/IR), autophosphorylation- and internalization-deficient receptors (CHO/IRA1018), and receptors which undergo autophosphorylation but lack a sequence required for internalization (CHO/IR delta 960). The rate of(More)
PCR screening with primers specific for the T-, M-, and O-type P element subfamilies was performed to investigate the interspecific distribution in 18 species and to reconstruct the phylogenetic history of the various types within the obscura species group. T-type elements occur in D. ambigua, D. tristis, D. obscura, D. subsilvestris, and D. eskoi. In the(More)
