Abstract:
TRANSIBN1_AG is a family of nonautonomous DNA transposons that belongs to the TRANSIB superfamily originally identified in Drosophila (see description of TRANSIBN1-TRANSIB4 in drorep.ref). TRANSIBN1_AG is characterized by a remarkable target site specificity. Its copies are inserted into the CCagtGG target site, and CagtG is a 5-bp target site duplication. There are ~100 copies of TRANSIBN1_AG in the genome. The TRANSIBN1_AG consensus sequence was reconstructed based on multiple alignment of 30 copies. Given the ~2% divergence of these copies from the consensus sequence, transposition of TRANSIBN1_AG occurred recently (in the last 1 Myr). TRANSIBN1_AG has 17-bp terminal inverted repeats (2 mismatches).
