This paper studies the effect of chronic Γ-radiation of different intensities on the induction of hobo-elements in cells of dysgenetic and non-dysgenetic drosophila species. The level of gonadal atrophy, DNA damage, and mutability of the mini-white locus is estimated. It is shown that the frequency of displacements of the hobo-elements increases with the increase in the chronic irradiation dose, where an essential role belongs to the maternal effect. The level of DNA damage in the cells of embryos and larvae varies and depends on the conditions of induction of hobo-transposons. Analysis of the PCR products showed that chronic irradiation in a certain range of accumulated doses is able to induce formation of new copies of the hobo-elements. At the same time, the structure of deleted hobo-sequences may vary in response to higher doses of irradiation.
