Title:

Abstract:
There are ~100 copies of MARINERN9_AG in the genome, they are ~96% identical to the consensus sequence. MARINERN9_AG copies are flanked by the TA target site duplications. This family is characterized by a target site specificity: MARINERN9_AG elements are inserted preferentially it the 10-bp acatTAatgt palindrome. The consensus sequence has 19-bp terminal inverted repeats (3 mismatches) and 21-bp subterminal inverted repeats (pos. 29-49 and 329-309). Putative classification: a nonautonomous Mariner/Tc1-like DNA transposon. The genome harbors several subfamilies of MARINERN9_AG.
