Pot2, an inverted repeat transposon from the rice blast fungus Magnaporthe grisea

We report the cloning and characterisation of Pot2, a putative transposable element from Magnaporthe grisea. The element is 1857 by in size, has 43-bp perfect terminal inverted repeats (TIRs) and 16-bp direct repeats within the TIRs. A large open reading frame, potentially coding for a transposase-like protein, was identified. This putative protein coding… CONTINUE READING
