Nucleotide Sequence of the Transposable DNA-element IS2

Nucleic Acids Res. 1979 Mar;6(3):1111-22. doi: 10.1093/nar/6.3.1111.


The complete sequence of the transposable DNA element IS2 in gal OP-308:: IS2 (I) has been determined. This element is 1.327 bp long. The integrated element is flanked by a five base pair long sequence duplication. The termini of IS2 are not perfect inverted repeats, but a close approximation.
