TRANSIB4 (DF0001722)

TRANSIB4 is a DNA transposon, a consensus sequence.


Transib4 belongs to the Transib superfamily of DNA transposons. It generated 5-bp duplications of the CantG target sites upon its integration into the genome, and has 40-bp terminal inverted repeats. The encoded transposase is not perfectly recovered since the genome harbors only a small number of Transib4 copies, which are damaged by mutations. Transib4 encodes the Transib4p transposase (positions 497-2219).
