Title:
ACROBAT1, a nonautonomous DNA transposon from zebrafish.
Journal:
Repbase Reports 2:(5) p. 1 (2002)
Abstract:
Several hundred copies of ACROBAT1 are expected to populate the zebrafish genome. The element was active recently, its copies are ~5% divergent from the consensus sequence. The genome is populated by multiple subfamilies related to ACROBAT1. This element is characterized by 19-bp terminal inverted repeats. Its classification is uncertain and needs additional data. Usually, ACROBAT1 copies are flanked by CCT and TGG. It's possible that they have been inserted into the CCTGG target site and generated duplications of T.
