LOOPER1_DM (DF0001663)

LOOPER1_DM DNA transposon


LOOPER1_DM belongs to the Looper/PiggyBac superfamily of "cut and paste" DNA transposons. This family was active in a recent past (several million years ago). It has 16-bp TIRs (one mismatch) and its copies are flanked by the 4-bp TTAA target site duplications. LOOPER1_DM encodes the Looper1DMp transposase (positions 505-1542). Looper1DMp is closer to Looper/PiggyBac transposases identified in the human genome than to the PiggyBac transposase found in moth.
