Title:
Rehavkus-3_TC, a family of Rehavkus DNA transposons from the red flour beetle genome.
Journal:
Repbase Reports 6(4), 196-196 (2006)
Abstract:
Rehavkus-3_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-3_TC. Its 709-bp inverted termini are composed of a 283-bp terminal inverted repeat and 167-bp subterminal minisatellite-like unit. In the 3' terminal portion, the minisatellite unit covers ~11-kb region. The transposon is flanked by 9-bp target site duplications and encodes a 1200-aa Rehavkus-3_TC tranposase. Its C-terminal portion contains the PHD finger and Ulp1 cysteine protease.
