Title:
Rehavkus DNA transposons from the leech genome.

Abstract:
Rehavkus-1_HR belongs to the Rehavkus superfamily of "cut and paste" DNA transposons, which are widespread in different metazoa, including insects, sea squirts, sea urchin and fish. The genome harbors several copies of this transposon that are less that 3% divergent from the consensus sequence. Rahavkus-1_HR contains 26-bp terminal inverted repeats. The 73-bp 5' terminal portion is tandemly duplicated (pos. 1-73, 73-146). The 3' terminal portion contains a 184-bp minisatellite (pos. 9743-10442). Rehavkus-1_HR elements are flanked by 9-bp target site duplications. The transposon encodes a 915-aa Rehavkus-1_HR transposase, which is composed of the transposase core, C48 cysteine protease, and PHD finger.
