Examples of gene-TE chimeric transcripts in the D. melanogaster genome. Gene models are shown in blue, chimeric TE insertions are shown in red, and supporting EST clones are shown in black. A) A case of single TE insertion into the overlapping 3'UTRs of convergently transcribed genes creating two chimeric transcripts. B) A case of a chimeric transcript skipping several genes and creating a nested gene arrangement. C) A case of a chimeric transcript skipping an exon of a flanking gene creating an intercalated gene arrangement.
