Chromocenter DNA fragments of polytene chromosomes of Drosophila orena ovarian nurse cells were cloned from a region-specific library (Dore1) in a plasmid vector to yield 133 clones. A total of 76 clones were selected and sequenced. The total length of the sequenced fragments was 23940 bp. Analysis with several software packages revealed various repetitive sequences among the fragments of the Dore1 library, including mobile genetic elements (25 fragments homologous to various LTR retrotransposons, five fragments homologous to LINEs, three fragments homologous to Helitrons, one fragment homologous to Polinton, and one fragment homologous to the mini-me non-LTR retrotransposon), four minisatellites, a satellite (SAR_DM), the (TATATG)n simple sequence repeat, and a low-complexity T-rich repeat. Sequences homologous to protein-coding genes were also found in the Dore1 library. Various repetitive DNA sequences and gene homologs were identified as conserved sequences of pericentric heterochromatin of polytene chromosomes of ovarian nurse cells in nine species of the melanogaster species subgroup.
