Title:
Rehavkus-1_TC, a family of Rehavkus DNA transposons from the red flour beetle genome.
Journal:
Repbase Reports 6(4), 193-193 (2006)
Abstract:
Rehavkus-1_TC 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 beetle genome harbors several ~95% identical copies of this tranpsoson. Its ~1340-bp inverted termini are composed of a 412-bp terminal inverted repeat and 164-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 1079-aa Rehavkus-1_TC tranposase, whose C-terminal portion contains the Ulp1 cysteine protease.
