Abstract:
Kolobok-1_NV is a consensus sequence of a family of autonomous Kolobok transposons that were active in the lancelet genome in a last few million years. The Kolobok-1_NV transposon is characterized by 15-bp terminal inverted repeats, TTAA target site duplications, and it encodes two proteins: (i) the 746-aa Kolobok-1_NV1p transposase and (ii) the 171-aa Kolobok-1_NV2p protein. The second protein is conserved in highly diverse Kolobok transposons present in the genomes of vertebrates (frog, fish), chordates (lancelet, sea urchin, sea squirt), and cnidarians (starlet sea anemone). Kolobok transposons, including numerous families of non-autonomous elements, constitute ~2% of the starlet sea anemone genome. See also comments in Kolobok-1_XT.
