Micropia: a retrotransposon of Drosophila combining structural features of DNA viruses, retroviruses and non-viral transposable elements.


The retrotransposon micropia was first described from Y-chromosomal fertility genes of Drosophila hydei. Screening a Drosophila melanogaster genomic library yielded several clones representing micropia elements in D. melanogaster. The DNA sequences of two elements from D. hydei (micropia-DhMiF2 and micropia-DhMiF8) and two elements from D. melanogaster… (More)
