Comments

The "Dr. D" repetitive sequence (described in FBrf0048918) contains sequences of both INE-1 and 1360 transposable elements.

A 1360 element has been cloned and sequenced. It is flanked by short inverted repeats. The 1360 element is present in approximately 10-30 euchromatic sites and also in numerous heterochromatic sites (in the chromocenter, pericentric heterochromatin, the fourth chromosome and at the telomeres) in the D.melanogaster genome. At least 6 variant 1360 elements differing in the length of the central region have been detected. The 1360 element has ARS activity, similar to the P-element.

In situ hybridization to polytene chromosomes shows variable, strain-specific location in the euchromatic parts of the arms and heavy labelling of the 12E region of the X chromosome, chromosome bases (20A--20F, 40A--40F, 41A--41F, 80A--80C and 81F), the chromocentre and chromosome 4.
