DNAREP1_DM (DF0001586)

DNAREP1_DM is a putative nonautonomous DNA transposable sequence.


DNAREP1_DM is one of the most ambiguous repetitive elements in the D.melanogaster genome. There are several thousand copies of DNAREP1_DM in the genome. The average divergence between DNAREP1_DM copies and the consensus sequence is 20%. Presumably, DNAREP1_DM has been mobilized in a common ancestors of Drosophilidae since its old age (>20 Myrs) and presence in different Drosophila species. It's possible that DNAREP1_DM was active in Brachycera since significant part of DNAREP1_DM has been found in promoter region of P450 gene (U09343) in the house fly genome. DNAREP1_DM is classified as a nonautonomous DNA transposon because of noticeable conservation of its termini and multiple internal deletions.
