Eukaryotic transposons such as the Ty element of yeast1 or the copia-like sequences of Drosophila2 show structural and functional similarities to both prokaryotic transposons3,4 and retroviral pro-viruses5–8, but the prokaryotic transposons and retroviral pro-viruses use markedly different expression strategies which yield products having entirely different functions3–5. To determine the phylogenetic relationship between eukaryotic transposons, prokaryotic transposons and retroviruses, we have… CONTINUE READING
