Abstract:
Kolobok-4_TV is a consensus sequence of a family of autonomous Kolobok transposons that were active in the T. vaginalis genome in a last few million years. The Kolobok-4_TV transposon is characterized by 12-bp terminal inverted repeats, TTAA target site duplications, and it encodes the 455-aa Kolobok-4_TV1p transposase. Kolobok transposons, including numerous families of non-autonomous elements, constitute >2% of the T. vaginalis genome. See also comments in Kolobok-1_XT.
