MER102b (DF0000697)

hAT-Charlie DNA transposon, MER102b subfamily


Present in Sus scrofa. Originally classified as a putative DNA transposon based on a weak nucleotide identity to MER58B. Final classification as a hAT DNA transposon is based on identification of 15 bp TIRs and 8 bp TSDs with MER1-like NTCTAGAN bias. MER stands for MEdium Reiteration frequency interspersed repeat. As such, MERs as a group are a grab bag of DNA transposons and retrotransposons.
