Keyword Transposition

UniProtKB (292) rdf/xml obo
DefinitionProtein involved in the movement of a specific DNA sequence - generally known as a transposable element or transposon - to another location within the genome by replication of the sequence and insertion of the copy at its target site, at random or at some specific site. Proteins necessary for the transposition, such as the enzyme transposase, are usually encoded by the transposable element itself.
