Abstract:
Transib1 is a family of autonomous transposons in Drosophila mojavensis and Drosophila willistoni. The 3058bp consensus sequence was obtained by multiple alignment of 11 sequences. The consensus sequence encodes a 682 amino acid transposase, with some homology to Transib transposases, in a single ORF between positions 499 and 2547. Transib1_Dmoj has 40bp terminal inverted repeats. Transib1_Dmoj appears to be currently active in D. mojavensis, with nine copies showing between 99.84% and 100% identity to the consensus sequence, with an average of 99.93%. Two copies are more divergent, with 94.50% and 96.07% identity to the consensus. Transib1 appears to have been involved in a horizontal transfer event between D. willistoni and D. mojavensis. The identity between the consensus sequences in these two species is 86.99%.
