We have determined the complete nucleotide sequence of the copia element present at the white-apricot allele of the white locus in Drosophila melanogaster. This transposable element is 5,146 nucleotides long and contains a single long open reading frame of 4,227 nucleotides. Analysis of the coding potential of the large open reading frame, which appears to encode a polyprotein, revealed weak homology to a number of retroviral proteins, including a protease, nucleic acid-binding protein, and… CONTINUE READING
