Autonomous Chapaev transposons from the hydra genome.

Abstract:
Chapaev-6_HM is a very young family of autonomous Chapaev DNA transposons that can be still active in the hydra genome (they are ~0.1% divergent from their consensus sequence). The consensus sequence was obtained based on a multiple alignment of 4 copies; it codes for a 997-aa Chapaev transposase (ten exons). Chapaev-6_HM is characterized by 4-bp target site duplications, 12-bp terminal and 21-bp subterminal inverted repeats (separated by 16- and 6-bp regions from the 5' and 3' TIRs, respectively).
