Charlie10 (DF0000081)

hAT-Charlie DNA transposon, Charlie10 subfamily (autonomous)


Charlie10 is a full-length hAT-Charlie DNA transposon. MER5C is an internal deletion product of Charlie10. MER5A and B, with 65000 copies by far the most numerous DNA transposon remnants in the human genome, have closely matching termini, but a dissimilar (short) internal region. Charlie10 may have caused their distribution, in analogy to the transposition of Ds1 by Activator. The human gene KIAA1923 (WDR59) appears to be an ancient, domesticated Charlie10 transposase.
