Title:
Rehavkus-1_DY, a family of Rehavkus DNA transposons from the fruit fly Drosophila yakuba genome.

Abstract:
Rehavkus-1_DY 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. Its 1217-bp inverted termini are composed of a 290-bp terminal inverted repeat and 133-bp subterminal minisatellite-like unit. Similar structure of termini characterizes all Rehavkus transposons identified so far in different species. The transposon is flanked by a 9-bp target site duplication and encodes the 969-aa Rehavkus-1_DY tranposase. The ~1050-bp termini of Rehavkus-1_DY are 79% identical with termini of the FB4/FB transposon identified previously in the D. melanogaster genome. The TPase-encoding region is 86% identical to a portion of the FB/NOF transposon from D. melanogaster that codes for a hypothetical protein. Due to detection of this protein conserved in diverse Rehavkus transposons, we can claim that it belongs to a novel class of "cut and paste" transposases.
