The ref(2)P gene of Drosophila melanogaster is implicated in sigma rhabdovirus multiplication. A permissive allele was cloned and sequenced. The structural gene (3.1 kbp) is divided into three exons. The mRNAs are heterogeneous in size. They differ only in the 5' end of the first exon. The sequence upstream of the short mRNAs contains classical promoter elements. No TATA and CAAT boxes are appropriately positioned upstream of the initiation sites of the long mRNAs, but several repeats… CONTINUE READING
