Description

This entry describes a family, family 3, of Rickettsia palindromic elements (RPE3). The elements spread within a genome as selfish genetic elements, inserting into genes creating additional coding regions that do not disrupt the reading frame. This model finds RPE-encoded regions in several Rickettsial species and, so far, no where else.
