Turmoil1 (DF0001491)

DNA transposon TURMOIL1.


TURMOIL1 encodes HARBINGER-like transposase. The most conservative domain of the transposase is encoded by the region 3379-4097. The TURMOIL1 transposase is most similar to the transposase encoded by the TURMOIL2 transposon. The two transposons do not share any similar DNA fragments but they have one remarkable hallmark being flanked by long terminal inverted repeats. TURMOIL1 is flanked by almost identical 777-bp TIRs.
