    ..Our results suggest that the THAP domain is a novel example of a DBD that is shared between cellular proteins and transposases from mobile genomic parasites. ..

    ..As P sequences and THAP genes are found together in many animal genomes, we discuss the possibility that the THAP proteins have acquired their domain as a result of recurrent molecular domestication of P-transposable elements. ..

    ..Elucidating sources of false-positive signals for imprinting in allele-specific RNA-seq data, as done here, is critical given the growing popularity of this method for identifying imprinted genes. ..
