Abstract:
Chapaev3-1_DW belongs to the Chapaev3 group of the Chapaev superfamily of DNA transposons (see comments on Chapaev3-1_PM). Chapaev3-1_DW is a realtively young family of fruit fly Chapaev3 transposons: genomic copies of Chapae3-1_DW elements are ~95% identical to their consensus sequence, which was derived from multiple alignment of a few Chapaev3-1_DW elements damaged by multiple deletions. The transposase-encoding region is corrupted by mutations accumulated in genomic copies. Chapaev3-1_DW contains 12-bp TIRs and ~550-bp subterminal inverted repeats. The genomoe contains numerous non-autonomous derivates of Chapaev3-1_DW.
