Title:
piggyBac-N3_SP, a family of nonautonomous DNA transposons in the sea urchin genome
Journal:
Repbase Reports 4:(11) p.308 (2004)
Abstract:
The genome harbors over 10,000 copies of piggyBac-N3_SP elements that are ~87% identical to the consensus sequence. These elements are characterized by the TTAA target site duplications and imperfect 15-bp terminal inverted repeats (4 mismatches). Preliminary classification, based on the TTAA target site duplications, - piggyBac superfamily [2]. A portion of piggyBac-N3_SP (pos. 182 -97) is 86% identical to a portion of the CSP2111 repeat [1]. The second portion of CSP2111 (pos. 1-62) is a part of ankyrin-encoding unit. In the sequenced genome, these two portions are dispersed independently.
