Abstract:
Merlin1_HS is an ancient family of DNA transposons related to the Merlin/IS1016 family. There are less than 30 copies of Merlin1_HS are present in the H. sapiens draft genome sequence, they are 75-85% identical to each other. The consensus sequence below was tentatively reconstructed from an alignment of 10 copies. Merlin1_HS is classified as a member of the Merlin/IS1016 superfamily based on: (1) sequence similarities in the 21-bp TIRs, the size of the TSD (8 bp) and sequence similarities in ORF fragments which remain in some Merlin1_HS copies. These ORF fragments are likely to represent fossils of a Merlin-like transposase once active in mammals.
