Abstract:
Chapaev3-1_OL belongs to the Chapaev3 group of the Chapaev superfamily of DNA transposons (see comments on Chapaev3-1_PM). Chapaev3-1_OL is a family of fish Chapaev3 transposons: genomic copies of Chapae3-1_OL elements are ~95% identical to their consensus sequence, which was derived from multiple alignment of a fiew Chapaev3-1_OL elements. The transposase-encoding region (pos. 440-1800) is corrupted by mutations accumulated in these elements after their transposition. Chapaev3-1_OL contains 12-bp TIRs. The Chapaev3-1_OL DNA sequence (pos. 571-2062) is 78% identical to the lamprey Chapaev3-1_PM. This high identity indicates horizontal transfer of these transposons.
