Mobile genetic elements are responsible for most spontaneous mutations in Drosophila melenogaster. The discovered in the 1980s phenomenon of frequent change of the wild-type yellow phenotype for a mutant one, and vice-versa, in strains of Drosophila melanogaster isolated from the Uman' natural population can be, according to our data, explained by repeated inversions and reinversions of the gene regulatory region located between the two copies of the hobo transport. However, most molecular… CONTINUE READING
