Abstract:
Kolobok-2_BF 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-2_BF transposon is characterized by 343-bp terminal inverted repeats, TTAA target site duplications, and it encodes two proteins: (i) the 803-aa transposase, Kolobok-2_BF1p, composed of the THAP DNA-binding domain and catalytic "DDE" domain, which is conserved in all Kolobok transposases, and (ii) the 281-aa Kolobok-2_BF2p 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).
