Abstract:
Transib-9_HM is a family of autonomous Transib DNA transposons that were active in the hydra genome more than a few million years ago (copies are ~8% divergent from their consensus sequence). The consensus sequence was obtained based on a multiple alignment of a few copies copies; it codes for a 678-aa Transib transposase (3 exons). Like other Transib transposons, Transib-9_HM is characterized by 5-bp target site duplications and short terminal inverted repeats. The Transib-9_HM transposase forms a distinctive cluster together with Transib-1_HM and the sea urchin RAG1-like protein (GenBank, NP_001028179).
