Abstract:
There are ~20 copies of piggyBacN9_AG in the genome, they are ~94% identical to the consensus sequence. piggyBacN1_AG copies are flanked by the TTAA target site duplications. The consensus sequence has 17-bp terminal inverted repeats (2 mismatches). The internal portion form an imperfect palindrome (pos. 200-1626). It main part (pos. 625-1251) was formed from a MARINERN12_AG-like element. Classification: a nonautonomous piggyBac-like DNA transposon. The genome harbors several subfamilies of piggyBacN9_AG. This family was derived from to the piggyBac1_AG-like autonomous transposon.
