Helitron3Na_Mam (DF0000160)

Helitron DNA transposon, Helitron3Na_Mam subfamily


Helitrons are thought to transpose with a rolling circle mechanism, and represent a distinct class of DNA transposon. Helitron3Na_Mam represents a non-autonomous helitron fossil also found in other mammals, though it is not clearly similar to the other human helitron models.
