P element domestication: a stationary truncated P element may encode a 66-kDa repressor-like protein in the Drosophila montium species subgroup.

Abstract

Functional P transposable elements can be separated into two distinct classes: mobile elements, which present the canonical structure, with transposase and repressor functions, and immobile P sequences truncated in 5' and 3' by loss of the terminal inverted repeats and exon 3, which retain only the repressor function. This second class was first described… (More)
