Abstract:
hAT-N18_DR is a family of nonautonomous DNA transposons that belongs to the hAT superfamily. This transposable element is characterized by 8-bp target site duplications and 15-bp terminal inverted repeats . hAT-N18_DR is a composite transposon: its internal portion (pos. 607-1219) is a copy of the DNA2-2_DR transposon (pos. 1-615). The 70-bp termini of hAT-N18 and hAT-N19 are 90% identical to each other. The primate CHARLIE3 hAT transposon is 78% identical to the hAT-N18 consensus sequence, excluding the DNA2-2_DR copy. Such high identity indicates the horizontal transfer .
