The chromosomal location of the mobile element mdg-1 was studied in 17 highly-inbred lines of Drosophila melanogaster. Although some lines were stable for their pattern of insertion sites from the 15th to the 27th and 35th brother–sister generations, others showed a high rate of gain of new insertion sites or a high rate of excision (loss of elements). In one line, 8 new insertion sites on the third chromosome were associated with an inversion on this chromosome; there is evidence that the… CONTINUE READING
