Abstract:
Chapaev3-3N1_AC belongs to the Chapaev3 group of the Chapaev superfamily of DNA transposons (see comments on Chapaev3-1_PM). Chapaev3-3N1_AC is a relatively old family of lizard non-autonomous Chapaev3 transposons: Chapae3-3N1_AC elements are 80-90% identical to their consensus sequence, which was derived from multiple alignment of 50 Chapaev3-3N1_AC elements. The genome contains a few thousand copies of Chapaev3-3N1_AC elements (including different subfamilies). Chapaev3-3N1_AC contains imperfect 11-bp TIRs (2 mismatches) and ~100-bp subterminal inverted repeats. The Chapaev3-3N1_AC is 97% identical to the hedgehog tenrec Chapaev3-1_ET consensus (a perfect case of horizontal transfer of Chapaev transposons between mammals and reptiles). The lizard genome contains only two long copies of a Chapaev3-3_AC autonomous transposon (e.g. contig_8712, pos. 139343-142746; contig_9047, pos. 170536-169001), which are ~87% identical to the Chapaev3-1_ET consensus sequence.
