MeSH Heading
Terminal Repeat Sequences
Tree Number(s)

G05.360.080.708.850
Unique ID
D020079

Scope Note
Nucleotide sequences repeated on both the 5' and 3' ends of a sequence under consideration. For example, the hallmarks of a transposon are that it is flanked by inverted repeats on each end and the inverted repeats are flanked by direct repeats. The Delta element of Ty retrotransposons and LTRs (long terminal repeats) are examples of this concept.
