Kolobok-1_DR (DF0002691)

Autonomous Kolobok transposon from zebrafish


Kolobok-1_DR is a consensus sequence of a family of autonomous Kolobok transposons that were active in the zebrafish genome in the last few million years. The Kolobok-1_DR transposon is characterized by 15-bp imperfect terminal inverted repeats, TTAA target site duplications, and it encodes two proteins: (i) the 699-aa transposase, Kolobok-1_DR1p, composed of the THAP DNA-binding domain and catalytic "DDE" domain, which is conserved in all Kolobok transposases, and (ii) the 155-aa Kolobok-1_DR2p protein. The second protein is conserved in highly diverse Kolobok transposons present in the genomes of vertebrates (frog, fish), chordates (lancelet, sea urchin, sea squirt), and cnidarians (starlet sea anemone).
