MER94 (DF0000959)

hAT-Blackjack DNA transposon, MER94 subfamily (non-autonomous)


MER94 is a non-autonomous derivative of BLACKJACK with 14bp TIRs. The earliest reconstruction of this element was in the opposite orientation. 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.
