Developmental expression of the 412 retrotransposon in natural populations of D. melanogaster and D. simulans.

We analysed the pattern of expression of retrotransposon 412 through developmental stages in various populations of Drosophila simulans and D. melanogaster differing in 412 copy number. We found that the 412 expression pattern varied greatly between populations of both species, indicating that such patterns were not entirely species-specific. In D. simulans… CONTINUE READING
