Mariner2_CE (DF0001516)

Autonomous DNA transposon from C. elegans


MARINER2_CA is a putative active autonomous DNA transposon; there are about 50 identical copies of MARINER2_CA fixed in the C.elegans genome. MARINER2_CA is flanked by TA target site duplications and it has perfect 27 bp-long terminal inverted repeats. Transposase is encoded by a single ORF (position 150-1151). MARINER2 transposase is most close to the one encoded by the human MARINER element (42% similarity and 60% identity between amino acid sequences).
