CeRep1A (DF0001384)

Nematode CeRep1.1 repeat DNA


CEREP1A is a putative nonautonomous DNA transposon. This element is flanked by identical 383 bp-long terminal inverted repeats and it generates 8 bp-long duplications of a target site upon its integration in the genome. Presumably, HAT-related transposase is involved in propagation of CEREP1A
