We describe the properties of a repetitive transposable element isolated from a chromosomal site close to the Adh (alcohol dehydrogenase gene) region of the Hawaiian Drosophila species, D. heteroneura. The cloned element is less than 2 kilobases in length. Although its polytene chromosome sites are constant in an individual, it shows a pattern of in situ hybridization that varies both within and between five species of the D. planitibia subgroup. These species are closely related, having… CONTINUE READING
