Abstract:
FORDPREFECT is a hAT-class element with 8 bp target site dups. It has about 1300 copies in human genome, including FORDPREFECT_A. The first 66 bp of FORDPREFECT are 90%, and the last 36 bp are 80% identical to those of ZAPHOD. It does not seem to have had coding capacity and perhaps hitchhiked with ZAPHOD. The average divergence level of copies to the consensus is 22% (20% outside CG, ~24% substitution level).
