Title:
Rehavkus-1_CS, a family of Rehavkus DNA transposons from the sea squirt Ciona savignyi genome.

Abstract:
Rehavkus-1_CS belongs to the Rehavkus superfamily of "cut and paste" DNA transposons, which are widespread in different metazoa, including insects, sea squirts, sea urchin and fish. The genome harbors two copies of this tranpsoson. Its ~5-kb inverted termini are composed of a 406-bp terminal inverted repeat and 190-bp subterminal minisatellite-like unit. The transposon is flanked by a 9-bp target site duplication and encodes an incomplete 325-aa Rehavkus-1_CS tranposase.
