Turmoil2 (DF0001492)

DNA transposon TURMOIL2.


TURMOIL2 encodes HARBINGER-like transposase. The most conservative domain of the transposase is encoded by regions 3922-4137 and 4199-4651. The TURMOIL2 transposase is most similar to the transposase encoded by the TURMOIL1 transposon. Both transposons do not share similar DNA fragments but they have one remarkable hallmark being flanked by long terminal inverted repeats. TURMOIL2 is flanked by almost identical 1900-bp TIRs.
