Helitron1Nb_Mam (DF0000158)

Helitron DNA transposon, Helitron1Nb_Mam subfamily


Helitrons are thought to transpose with a rolling circle mechanism, and represent a distinct class of DNA transposon. Helitron1Nb_Mam represents a non-autonomous helitron fossil found broadly in mammals. Helitron1Nb_Mam is identical to Helitron1Na_Mam except over the region 696-913 in "1Nb" and 696-859 in "1Na", where they are unrelated.
