LONGPAL1 (DF0001424)

LONGPAL1 nonautonomous DNA transposon


LONGPAL1 is a putative non-autonomous DNA transposon; it forms an almost perfect 1200 bp-long palindrome and generates duplication of 9 bp-long target site upon its integration in the genome. The length of the target site duplications indicates that transposase encoded by the autonomous LONPAL1-like element may be related to Mudr-like family. LONGPAL1 may be still mobile since some of its individual copies are more than 99% identical with the consensus sequence.
