Abstract:
Transib1 is a family of autonomous transposons in Drosophila willistoni and Drosophila mojavensis. The 3060bp consensus sequence was obtained by multiple alignment of 27 sequences. The consensus sequence encodes a 672 amino acid transposase, with some homology to Transib transposases, in a single ORF between positions 499 and 2518. Transib1_Dwil has 40bp terminal inverted repeats. Transib1_Dwil appears to have been active recently in D. willistoni. Elements are on average 98.02% identical to the consensus sequence, ranging from 96.38% to 99.30%. Two point mutations at positions 847 and 848, introducing a premature stop codon into the transposase ORF, are shared by six elements, which have apparently been propagated non-autonomously. 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%.
