Abstract:
The A. gambiae genome harbors many divergent families of P-like DNA transposons. One of those families is P2_AG. P2_AG elements are flanked by 8-bp target site duplications. Terminal inverted repeats are 27bp long. The P2_AG consensus sequence was reconstructed from several copies that are only ~2% divergent from each other. Presumably, P2_AG copies have multiplied in the genome during the last 1 million years. P2_AG encodes the P-like transposase that is slightly damaged by mutations accumulated in genomic copies of P2_AG.
