PALTA3_CE (DF0001462)

PALTA3_CE is a putative nonautonomous DNA transposon

Description

PALTA3_CE is a putative non-autonomous DNA transposon; it forms almost perfect 180 bp-long palindrome and appears to generate duplications of TA target site upon its integration in the genome. Multiple transpositions of PALTA3_CE were likely induced by Mariner/Tc-like transposase.
