Genome Property Definition Page

Nameconjugative transposon, Bacteroides type
DescriptionThis property describes a class of conjugative transposon, including CTnDOT and related elements, from various Bacteroides and related species. These self-transmissable elements can be fairly large, 50-100 Kb, and contain proteins required for integration, excision, and conjugation. A single genome, such as Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron VPI-5482, may contain several such elements.
