Abstract:
Harbinger2-1_NV 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_NV is a consensus sequence of a family of autonomous Harbinger transposons that were active in the Nematostella vectensis genome in a last few million years. This transposon is probably still active. Some copies are >99% identical to each other. The Harbinger2-1_NV transposon is characterized by 28-bp imperfect (3 mismatches) terminal inverted repeats, 3-bp target site duplications (TNA), and it encodes two proteins: (i) the 358-aa Harbinger2-1_NV1p transposase and (ii) the 244-aa Harbinger2-1_NV2p Myb-like DNA-binding protein.
