The P transposable element of Drosophila melanogaster has a complex array of cis-acting DNA sequences necessary for efficient transposition. At the 3' end these sequences extend over more than 150 bp and include 11- and 31-bp sequences found repeated in inverted orientation at the 5' end. The P element's 5' end, however, cannot function as its 3' end. When two 3' P-element ends are present, the more proximal end is used preferentially. We found also that the duplication of the target site does… CONTINUE READING
