|PubMed Abstract||The copy number of the retrotransposable element 412 of Drosophila simulans from populations collected worldwide shows a negative correlation with minimum temperature. No association was detected for the roo/B104 element. The possibility that selective pressures might regulate the 412 copy number in these natural populations is supported by detection of selection against the detrimental effects of 412 insertions (estimated by the proportion of insertions on the X chromosome in comparison with the autosomes) but not roo/B104. These data reveal different spatial patterns for two element families, and strongly suggest that some factors in the environment, such as temperature, may interfere with the control of retrotransposition, thus affecting important aspects of genomic evolution.|
