Identification and molecular characterization of R1 transposable elements in the cabbage moth Mamestra brassicae

, : Identification and molecular characterization of R1 transposable elements in the cabbage moth Mamestra brassicae. Caryologia il- e; 56(2): 155-160

RFLP experiments showed rDNA variants due to R1 insertions in the Mamestra brassicae 28S rDNA genes. Their location within the ribosomal genes was confirmed by PCR amplification of the 3' R1-28S rDNA junction. Dot blotting experiments indicated that 10% of rDNA units was interrupted by R1. RT-PCR showed that R1 was actively transcribed and that its insertion did not prevent the transcription of the interrupted ribosomal units. Northern blotting indicated that at least a portion of the R1 elements was spliced from the 28S rRNA. Digestion with MspI and HpaII indicated that R1 was not methylated in the cabbage moth genome and the methylation could be not involved in R1 control. These data, as a whole, suggested that M. brassicae R1 was active at the transpositional level.
