We report the complete sequence of a paralogous copy of elongation factor-1a (EF-1a) in the honeybee, Apis mellifera (Hymenoptera: Apidae). This copy differs from a previously described copy in the positions of five introns and in 25% of the nucleotide sites in the coding regions. The existence of two paralogous copies of EF-1a in Drosophila and Apis suggests that two copies of EF-1a may be widespread in the holometabolous insect orders. To distinguish between a single, ancient gene duplication… CONTINUE READING
