A new transposable element from the hobo, Ac, Tam3 transposon family was isolated as a genomic clone from the oriental fruit fly, Bactrocera dorsalis. It is approximately 3.1 kb in length with 19-bp inverted terminal repeat sequences having a single mismatch. Though sharing several amino acid sequence identities with other hAT elements, it is distantly related to both hobo and Ac. Among hAT elements thus far described in insects, it is apparently the most distantly related to hobo.
