Transposase

Jump to: navigation, search

Transposase is an enzyme that binds to single-stranded DNA and can incorporate it into genomic DNA. Class II transposons encode a transposase which allows them to enable transposons to be cut from genomic DNA and be inserted at another location.

They are classified under EC number EC 2.7.7.
