Title:
Gulliver, a family of autonomous hAT transposons from the green algae genome.

Abstract:
It is a consensus sequence of the Guliver hAT transposon. It was identified cytologically as a mobile element by Ferris, P.J. (Genetics, 1989; he reported only sequences of 246-bp 5'- and 370-bp 3'-terminal portions). It was suggested [1], based on 8-bp TSDs, that Gulliver belongs to the hAT superfamily. Final support of this classification came after identification of a transposase encoded by Gulliver [2]. The exons coding for the transposase have been predicted by using FGENESH and comparisons with known hAT transposases.
