Title:
Rehavkus DNA transposons from the leech genome.

Abstract:
Rehavkus-2_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 only three copies of this transposon, which are ~5% divergent from each other. One copy contains both termini and is flanked by the AGGGATAGG 9-bp target site duplication. Its 5'-terminal A is deleted; however, the T-3' terminus is intact. The The 822-kb inverted termini are composed of a 335-bp terminal inverted repeat and 178-bp subterminal minisatellite-like units. This transposon encodes a 1097-aa Rehavkus-2_HR transposase (pos. 1198-4488, contains 3 stop codons), which is composed of the transposase core, C48 cysteine protease, and PHD finger. This transposon contains an insertion of another transposable element (pos. 4680-4805).
