Polinton-1N1_DR (DF0003860)

Non-autonomous Maverick/Polinton DNA transposon from zebrafish


This nonautonomous transposon is characterized by ~7.3-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-1_DR.
