Abstract:
piggyBac-5_SM is a very young family of piggyBac transposons, characterized by 13-bp TIRs and TTAA target-site duplications. The consensus sequence was reconstructed based on multiple alignment of 14 copies (they are ~99.6% identical to the consensus). This transposon may be currently active.
