Abstract

A 3.1-kb region of Drosophila subobscura homologous to the Acp70A region of D. melanogaster, which contains the sex-peptide gene, was cloned and sequenced. This region contains an approximately 600-bp duplication that includes the sex-peptide and its 5' and 3' flanking regions. The preproteins are 54 and 56 amino acids long, respectively las compared to 55 amino acids in D. melanogaster), and each includes a 19-amino-acid-long signal peptide. The C-terminal part of the mature peptide is highly conserved between D. melanogaster and the two copies of D. subobscura. In this species, both copies of the gene are transcribed and, like in D. melanogaster, only expressed in males. The duplicated region includes 300 bp upstream of the gene that would therefore seem sufficient for their expression in males. This region presents at its 5'end a stretch 93-bp that has a high similarity with the correspondingregion of D. melanogaster and could be part of a still unidentified regulatory element of these genes.
