Abstract:
hAT5-4_NV is a young family of hAT DNA transposons and it belongs to a novel group of hAT transposons, called hAT5, generating 5-bp target site duplications upon their insertions into chromosomal DNA. The hAT5 transposase is similar to the standard hAT transposase (they share conserved catalytic motifs and converge with each other after a few rounds of PSI-BLAST); identified hAT5 transposase sequences form a distinctive phylogenetic cluster and they are also present in different species, e.g. sea urchin. The consensus sequence is incomplete, termini of this transposon are not known. The TPase encoding region is corrupted by a few mutations.
