Figure 2.29DNA transposons of prokaryotes

Four types are shown. Insertion sequences, Tn3-type transposons and transposable phages are flanked by short (< 50 bp) inverted terminal repeat (ITR) sequences. The resolvase gene of the Tn3-type transposon codes for a protein involved in the transposition process.
