Title:
Helitron1_Dmoj: a new family of helitrons in Drosophila mojavensis.
Journal:
Repbase Reports 8(9), 907-907 (2008)
Abstract:
Helitron1_Dmoj inserts preferentially into 5'-TT-3' target sites in T-rich regions and does not produce TSDs. The consensus was obtained by alignment of 67 elements. Elements are on average 97.5% identical to the consensus. Helitron1_Dmoj possesses a series of 8bp direct repeats at the 5' end, and does not encode any proteins. A Helitron1_Dmoj insertion is found within a recently-transposed Transib1_Dmoj element, therefore Helitron1_Dmoj is currently active in Drosophila mojavensis.
