Polinton-2N1_DR (DF0002282)

Non-autonomous Maverick/Polinton DNA transposon from zebrafish


This nonautonomous transposon is characterized by ~4.7-kb-bp terminal inverted repeats and 6-bp target site duplications. The consensus sequence was built based on multiple alignment of several copies that are >90% identical to each other. This nonautonomous family was derived from the autonomous Polinton-2_DR.
