  • Unexpectedly, the Anopheles genome contains only four members of this subfamily, and all are located in a single cluster on 2L (Figure 7b); the same four members were identifiable in the unassembled genomic sequence of Apis [ 48 ] . The simplest scenario is that members of the K box-family have undergone radical duplication and dispersal about the genome in Drosophila . This is consistent with the finding that the remaining members of the K-box family [ 47 ] , including mir-11 , the three mir-6 paralogs and the K-box-antisense gene mir-5 , are similarly absent from both Anopheles and Apis . However, one new putative member of the K-box family (2R:4681879) was identified by miRseeker, and it has been conserved in all four sequenced insect genomes.
