MER5A1 (DF0000877)

hAT-Charlie DNA transposon, MER5A1 subfamily (non-autonomous)


MER5A1 has 14 bp TIRs. It differs from MER5A largely by a 23 bp internal deletion. 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.
