The hobo transposable element can occur under three forms in the Drosophila genome: as a complete element (also called canonical), as internally deleted copies, or as hobo-related sequences (relics). Some evidence indicated that canonical elements and internally deleted copies are recent acquisitions of Drosophila genomes, while the “relics” are old components, normally degenerated and immobile. Here we present the characterization of a hobo-related sequence, found in the genome of a… CONTINUE READING
