Helitrons in the Anolis carolinensis lizard genome.

Abstract:
This is a consensus sequence of a family of non-autonomous Helitron transposons transposed in the lizard genome some 20-50 million years ago (copies are ~90% identical to the consensus). Different families of Helitrons constitute ~1% of the lizard genome. It seems that the 3' end is free of a terminal palindrome, which is present in most Helitrons reported previously. These transposons are inserted in the AT target sites without the target site duplications.
