Abstract


We report here the isolation and structure of a new repeated DNA element, tau. This element, from Saccharomyces cerevisiae, is 371 base pairs long and is flanked on either end by the same invertedly repeated sequence found at the ends of some Ty and sigma elements in yeast, copia elements in Drosophila and spleen necrosis virus. The tau inverted repeats are themselves flanked by a 5-base pair directly repeated genomic sequence that is present only once in a cognate tau-allele. These structural characteristics, the presence of multiple copies of tau in the genome, and the isolation of tau+ and tau- allelic pairs suggest that tau may be capable of transposition either alone or in association with some larger element. Detailed sequence analysis of the tau, sigma, and delta elements revealed that all three contain significant regions of homology, suggesting that they are probably members of a single family derived from a common progenitor.FAU - Genbauffe, F .
