hAT-N18_DR (DF0002509)

Non-autonomous hAT DNA transposon from zebrafish


15-bp TIRs and 8-bp TSDs. hAT-N18_DR is a composite transposon: its internal portion (pos. 607-1219) is a copy of the DNA2-2_DR transposon (pos. 1-615). The 70-bp termini of hAT-N18 and hAT-N19 are 90% identical to each other. The primate CHARLIE3 hAT transposon is 78% identical to the hAT-N18 consensus sequence, excluding the DNA2-2_DR copy. Such high identity may suggest horizontal transfer.
