The Major Transposon Families. The transposons are NOT to scale. The horizontal black bars above each Indicates a length of 2 kb. Transposons are represented as yello- filled boxes. Genes are represented as arrows within the transposon with the direction of expression Indicated by the arro heads Transposition-related genes are shown as lavender, resistance genes as red, integron integrase as blue, genes with other functions in pink and hypothetical genes in magenta. Recombination sites are shown in green..Transposition-related genes are shown as lavender, resistance genes as red, integron integrase as blue, genes with other functions in pink and hypothetical genes in magenta. Recombination sites are shown in green. 1) A composite or compound transposon, Tn10. 2) A Tn3 family transposon of the Tn3 group, Tn3. 3) A Tn3 family transposon of the Tn21 group, Tn5060. 4) A Tn7 family transposon, Tn7. 5) A Tn402 family transposon, Tn402 6) A Tn554 family transposon, Tn554.
