Abstract:
KANGA2 was a DNA transposon distantly related to Tc2 in C elegans (part of the larger IS630-Tc1 grouping). It encoded a transposase closest related to the human gene KIAA1513 and KANGA1 (Pos. 261 to 627 can be aligned to KANGA1 with < 73% identity). KANGA2_A is an internal deletion product (deletion point around pos 480) lacking much of the coding sequence. Average divergence level of copies to consensus 22% (~27% substituted). There are about 2500 copies in the human genome.
