Additional Information
Additional Information
piggyBac is a transposable element that encodes transposase gene flanked by inverted terminal repeats. The transposase can recognize the inverted terminal repeats, excises the transposon and facilitates its integration into the genome. Thus, piggyBac is used as a tool for insertional mutagenesis and transgenesis. piggyBac has been confirmed in insects, animals, plants, and yeast.
