PiggyBac transposable element derived 1 (PGBD1) is a member of the subfamily of piggyBac transposable element derived (PGBD) genes. The piggyBac family of proteins, found in diverse animals, are transposases related to the transposase of the canonical piggyBac transposon from the moth, Trichoplusia ni. This family also includes genes in several genomes, including human, that appear to have been derived from the piggyBac transposons. PGDB1 has been implicated as a candidate gene for risk of alzhimer’s and schizophrenia.
