PAL9A_CE (DF0001458)

PAL9A_CE is a putative nonautonomous DNA transposon


PAL9A_CE is a putative non-autonomous DNA transposon; it forms almost perfect palindrome and generates duplications of 9 bp-long target sites upon its integration in the genome. Multiple transpositions of PAL9A_CE were likely induced by MUDR-like transposase. PAL9A_CE is a composite transposon since it carries another nonautonomous transposon NPALTA1_CE (position ~888-1058).
