PAL8A_CE (DF0001451)

PAL8A_CE is a putative nonautonomous DNA transposon


PAL8A_CE is a putative non-autonomous DNA transposon; it has almost perfect 34 bp-long terminal inverted repeat and generates duplications of 8 bp-long target sites upon its integration in the genome. The PAL8A_CE nucleotide sequence forms a palindrome-like structure (its unpaired central loop is only several nucleotides long). Multiple transpositions of PAL8A_CE were likely induced by HAT-like transposase.
