Title:
Rehavkus-2_TC, a family of Rehavkus DNA transposons from the red flour beetle genome.
Journal:
Repbase Reports 6(4), 195-195 (2006)
Abstract:
Rehavkus-2_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 Rehavkus-2_TC. Its 580-bp inverted termini are composed of a 139-bp terminal inverted repeat and 148-bp subterminal minisatellite-like unit. The transposon is flanked by 9-bp target site duplications and encodes an incomplete 439-aa Rehavkus-2_TC tranposase.
