DNA9TA1_DR (DF0003049)

Non-autonomous DNA transposon from zebrafish


The consensus sequence was reconstructed based on 7 copies present in sequenced DNA representing 1% of the genome. Approximately 700 copies of DNA9TA1_DR are expected to populate the complete zebrafish genome. The element was active recently, its copies are only 2% divergent from the consensus sequence. Given its length, 9-bp terminal inverted repeats, the TA targets site duplications, DNA9TA1_DR is a quite unusual nonautonomous DNA transposon. DNA9TA1_TR carries also remnants of the HARBINGER2N_DR DNA transposon (positions 2186-2311). The genome harbors also copies of an ancient transposon which is ancestral to DNA9TA1_TR and does not have insertion of HARBINGER2N_DR. The termini match those of EnSpm-4_DR and EnSpm-5_DR. The original entry has been reverse complemented to match.
