Evidence is provided for the presence of retrosequences (also named retroposons) arising from Adh in the Drosophila subobscura genome. Restriction analysis and primary structure of two different retrosequence-containing clones, S812 and S135, are reported. The fact that these retrosequences lack introns and a recognizable promoter strongly supports their retrotranscriptional origin. Adjacent to the two retrosequences analyzed, a middle repetitive DNA element has been found which bears no clear… CONTINUE READING
