Abstract:
Rehavkus-N1_NV is a consensus sequence of a family of non-autonomous Rehavkus transposons. The Rehavkus-N1_NV transposon is characterized by 3000-bp TIRs and 9-bp target site duplications. Classification is based on a structure of termini conserved in all known Rehavkuses. A minor fraction of Rehavkus-N1_NV elements are flanked by 8-bp TSDs, probably, due to mutations. Rehavkus-N1_NV is a composite transposon: it harbors an inserted copy of DNA-5-9_NV, which is masked by Ns.The 3000-bp TIR is composed of two unique sequences (pos. 1-576 and 740-1352) and a 118-bp minisatellite.
