  • a Features that could not be identified from the DNA sequences, likely due to sequence degeneracy or deletion, are indicated by (—); ND, not determined due to lack of data; TSD, target site duplication; PBS, primer binding site; PPT, polypurine tract; M, metavirus; E, errantivirus.

  • b Features are for Athila accession X81801, with the exception of the TSD, which is for the insertion λH3 (Pelissier et al. 1995).

  • c Tma = T, transposon; m, metavirus; a, A. thaliana; Tma2-1 is from BAC IG007N22 and Tma4-1 is from ESSA contig 7 (Accession number Z97342, bases 76,621–82,535).
