Abstract:
Harbinger2-1_AAp belongs to a novel clade, Harbinger2, of Harbinger DNA transposons. This clade includes transposons present in protozoan (brown alga), fungi, choanoflagellate, and metazoans. Harbinger2-1_AAp is a consensus sequence of a family of autonomous Harbinger transposons that were active in the Ascosphaera apis genome recently. The consensus was derived from a few copies ~96% identical to it. The genome does not contain any full-size copies of Harbinger2-1_AAp. However, it contains ~10 full-size copies of nonautonomous elements that share termini with Harbinger2-1_AAp. Most of these copies are flanked by the ANT target site duplications. Therefore, the same should apply to Harbinger2-1_AAp. This transposon codes for the 370-aa TPase and 375 unclassified protein.
