Abstract:
Consensus for an autonomous member of the MER1 branch of hAT DNA transposons, closely related to the Charlie3 element. MER5C is an internal deletion product of Charlie10. MER5A and B, with 65000 copies by far the most numerous DNA transposon remnants in our genome, have closely matching termini, but a dissimilar (short) internal region. Charlie10 may have caused their distribution, in analogy to the transposition of Ds1 by Activator. The gene KIAA1923 is a domesticated Charlie10 DNA transposon. There are a few dozen full-length copies in the genome; average substitution level of the copies is 22-23% (19% divergence from consensus).
