Title:

Abstract:
Rehavkus-2_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 several copies of this tranpsoson. Its ~2-kb inverted termini are composed of a 343-bp terminal inverted repeat and 185-bp subterminal minisatellite-like unit. The transposon is flanked by a 9-bp target site duplication and encodes a 1071-aa Rehavkus-2_CS tranposase. The C-terminus of the transposase is composed of the Ulp1 cysteine protease domain (pos. 830-990) and PHD zinc finger (pos. 1023-1070).
