|Title||Transposase and method of gene modification|
A transposase encoded by the Tol2 element; a polynucleotide encoding the same; a method of modifying the gene structure of a cell (preferably a vertebrate cell) by using the above protein; a method of modifying the function of a cell by modifying the gene structure thereof; and a cell having been modified in function by these methods.
Also the structure of a cis element necessary in gene transfer is clarified and presented.
|Scope of claims||
1. An isolated nucleic acid encoding a protein having a transposase-like activity which can insert a fragment of a gene into the genome, wherein the protein consists of the amino acid sequence of SEQ ID NO: 2.
2. The nucleic acid according to claim 1, wherein the nucleic acid is DNA consisting of the nucleotide sequence of SEQ ID NO: 1.
3. The nucleic acid according to claim 1, wherein the nucleic acid is RNA.
