The Caenorhabditis briggsae genome contains active CbmaT1 and Tcb1 transposons

Brownlie, Jeremy; Johnson, Nick; Whyard, S


The maT clade of transposons is a group of transposable elements intermediate in sequence and predicted protein structure to mariner and Tc transposons, with a distribution thus far limited to a few invertebrate species. We present evidence, based on searches of publicly available databases, that the nematode Caenorhabditis briggsae has several maT-like transposons, which we have designated as CbmaT elements, dispersed throughout its genome. We also describe two additional transposon sequences...[Show more]
