The two types of Drosophila melanogaster rDNA insertion occur at different sites in the 28S gene, separated by 51 nucleotide pairs. A short segment of rDNA is deleted at the site of the 5 kilobase type I insertion, whereas there is no such deletion of rDNA sequences which flank the type II insertion. Type I insertion elements in tandem arrays are flanked by very short segments of the 28S rRNA gene.
