Abstract:
ORF 821-2293 encodes a protein equally close (ca. 30% identity, 50% similarity) to the transposases of Zaphod and Arthur. Could call it Slarti, but am restraining myself. First couple of 100 AA are not in the consensus though a deletion or are very diverged (no ORF either). Very few copies contains pos 800-1100. Internal deletion products are named MER97a-d in the database. There either are a dozen or wo copies in the opossum genome, or a related element was active independently. Considering the relatively high (500-1000) number in eutherians, I'm considering it eutherian-specific.
