Helitron2_CE (DF0001407)

HELITRON2_CE is a Helitron DNA transposon.

Description

HELITRON2_CE is a HELITRON-like DNA transposon. In many cases, HELITRON2_CE forms 7-9 kb minisatellite-like clusters composed from a ~200bp portion of HELITRON2_CE. HELITRON2_CE encodes a 904-aa protein, CEHEL2p, composed of the rolling-circle initiator and DNA helicase domains, putatively involved in proliferation of HELITRON2_CE copies.
