MamTip3 (DF0000999)

hAT-Tip100 DNA transposon (with LTR insert), MamTip3 subfamily


MamTip3 has 8bp TSDs, and has termini that are similar to other hAT-Tip100 elements in Xenopus, hydra, as well as MER96B and FordPrefect in human. However, an internal region of MamTip3 has convincing similarity to the U5 region of LTR85a/b/c. These LTRs are probably associated with a Gypsy retrotransposon. This indicates an ancient insertion or recombination event between a DNA transposon and a retrotransposon.
