MER103C (DF0000699)

hAT-Charlie DNA transposon, MER103C subfamily


This element may be a composite of 2 non-autonomous transposons inserted one into another. MER103B is an internal deletion product of Charlie14, but there are few copies, if any, that show evidence of independent proliferation (e.g. the NTCTAGAN target site signature is only found at one site). MER stands for MEdium Reiteration frequency interspersed repeat. As such, MERs as a group are a grab bag of DNA transposons and retrotransposons.
