ANGEL (DF0003448)

Non-autonomous DNA transposon from zebrafish


Originally deemed a hAT, but no evidence for 8 bp TSDs. New consensus in 2015 with TTAA termini removed and some minor improvements. Termini match those of Kolobok-N10_DR and TOL3_OL, but this group does not match autonomous Kolobok termini yet. Given the TSDs, the elements could also be PiggyBacs.
