Abstract:
Transib-1_HM is a young family of autonomous Transib DNA transposons were active in the hydra genome just a few million years ago (they are ~4% divergent from their consensus sequence). The consensus sequence was obtained based on a multiple alignment of ~50 copies; it codes for a 669-aa Transib transposase. Among known sequences of Transib transposases, the Transib-1_HM transposase is most close to the RAG1 core. A portion of it (pos. 2687-3457 in the consensus) was reported previously as a RAG1L_HM protein [1]. Like other Transib transposons, Transib-1_HM is characterized by 5-bp target site duplications and short terminal inverted repeats (they follow the 12/23 rule [1]).
