Interpretive Summary: The trasformer gene plays a critical role in the sex determination pathways of many insects. We cloned two transformer gene introns from Anastrepha suspensa, the Caribbean fruit fly. These introns have sequences that putatively have a role in sex-specific splicing patterns that affect sex determination in flies. The two sequences are reported under the Accession Numbers HM363510 and HM363511.
