Abstract:
In Ceratodon purpureus, sequences belonging to this superfamily are 10-12 kb in length, contain 35-40 bp terminal inverted repeats and encode 5 to 8 open reading frames (ORFs). One ORF, which is conserved across Lanisha elements, was found to present significant similarity with RAG1-type transposases using HMM-based homology search and contains potential conserved DDE catalytic triad. The putative transposase is distantly related to those of known transposable elements and therefore Lanisha is proposed to represent a novel superfamily of cut-and-paste DNA transposons. Using tBLASTn against the GenBank WGS and TSA databases, sequences that are homologous to Lanisha transposase were detected in sequences obtained from Klebsormidiophyceae, Ferns, Gymnosperms and Lycopods.
