Figure 3

A schematic model for Tc1/Tc3 transposition explaining the excision and integration of the element, the target duplication, and the generation of the footprint. The model is described in the text. Black arrows indicate the cleavage sites at the ends of the transposon and also where strand transfer reactions take place during integration. Only the most common somatic footprint is indicated.
