hAT-Charlie DNA transposon, MER30 subfamily (non-autonomous)

Description

Has 15 bp TIRs, 8 bp TSDs. Fragments of MER30 have been detected in frog, snake and chicken. 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.
