Abstract:
The consensus sequence represents an unusual family of long Mariners. It encodes a 326-bp Mariner/Tc1 transposase (MarinerL-1_AO-1p) and is characterized by 29-bp TIRs and TA TSDs. The genome harbors 3 copies of MarinerL-1_AO (99% identity). In addition to the transposase, this transposon encodes two unclassified proteins: MarinerL-1_AO-2p (tree exons, pos. 7004-5698) and MarinerL-1_AO-3p (two exons, pos. 8920-7298), and a DnaJ chaperone-like protein (two exons, pos. 4510-5307). The MarinerL-1_AO-2p and MarinerL-1_AO-3p proteins are important for transposition. They are also encoded by other long Mariners present in A. oryzae (MarinerL-2_AO), A. fumigatus (MarinerL-1_AF, MarinerL-2_AF) and Gibberella zeae.
