Abstract:
Novosib-1_CR is a young family of autonomous transposons. The consenus sequence was derived from several copies that are~99% identical to each other. These transposons are characterized by 8-bp target site duplications and 15-bp terminal inverted repeats. The genome contains also nonautonomous elements derived from Novosib-1_CR (see Novosib-N1 and Novosib-N1a). The main hallmark of the Novosib superfamily is a Novosib transposase that is not similar to any known proteins. So far C. reinhardtii is the only species whose genome is populate by Novosib transposons. We identified four families of autonomous Novosibs (Novosib-1_CR, Novosib-2_CR, Novosib-3_CR, Novosib-4_CR). Elements from each family are over 95% identical to each other and less then 65% identical to elements from other families. Despite the high divergency, elements from all four families encode conserved Novosib transposase.
