MER105 (DF0000702)

hAT-Charlie DNA transposon, MER105 subfamily (non-autonomous)


Classification based on terminal similarities to Repbase hAT-2_PMo and AeBuster3; and on the identity of the first 15 bp to the last 15 bp of Charlie6. TSD is unclear. MER stands for MEdium Reiteration frequency interspersed repeat. As such, MERs as a group are a grab bag of DNA transposons and retrotransposons.
