maT - A clade of transposons intermediate between mariner and Tc1

Claudianos, Charles; Whyard, S; Russell, Robyn; Oakeshott, John Graham


A group of transposons, named maT, with characteristics intermediate between mariner and Tc1 transposons, is described. Two defective genomic copies of MdmaT from the housefly Musca domestica, with 85% identity, were found flanking and imbedded in the MdαE7 esterase gene involved in organophosphate insecticide resistance. Two cDNA clones, with 99% identity to each other and 72%-89% identity to the genomic copies were also obtained, but both represented truncated versions of the putative open...[Show more]
