Polinton-1_DR (DF0002823)

Autonomous Maverick/Polinton DNA transposon from zebrafish


This transposon is characterized by ~350-bp terminal inverted repeats and 6-bp target site duplications (some copies have extra 5'-AG and TC-3' at their termini). The consensus sequence was built based on multiple alignment of several copies that are >90% identical to each other. It encodes a family B DNA polymerase (POLB-1_DR), retroviral integrase (INT-1_DR), ATPase (ATP-1_DR), cysteine protease (PRO-1_DR) and additional four unclassified proteins (PX-1_DR, PW-1_DR, PY-1_DR, and PZ-1_DR), conserved in Polintons from different species.
