Abstract:
Penelope2_Dw from Drosophila willistoni is 68% identical to Penelope from D. virilis, and 70% identical to Penelope1_Dw, another D. wllistoni Penelope element. There are about 60 copies of Penelope2_Dw in the sequenced part of the D. willistoni genome, most of which differ from the consensus by 1-5% but can differ by as much as 10-15%. Most of the copies are 5'-truncated, and only one appears to be fully intact (AAQB01010750) and is arranged in a characteristic partial-tandem, forming "pseudo-LTRs".
