Helitron2Na_Mam (DF0000159)

Helitron DNA transposon, Helitron2Na_Mam subfamily


Helitrons are thought to transpose with a rolling circle mechanism, and represent a distinct class of DNA transposon. While named a helitron, this 324bp TE model its classification is tentative. There is suggestive similarity to a non-autonomous helitron in the sea urchin S. purpuratus.
