MER107 (DF0000704)

hAT-Charlie DNA transposon, MER107 subfamily


Terminal inverted repeats identical to those of MER30. Terminal 18 bases match those of Charlie12 & MER30. Quite a few of the copies show the typical 8 bp TSDs with a bias to NTCTAGAN, but many others do not show TSDs at all -- an atypical Charlie element. Note that MER stands for MEdium Reiteration frequency interspersed repeat. As such, MERs as a group are a grab bag of DNA transposons and retrotransposons.
