Although Ins2 has no terminal repeats it is considered to be a transposon on the basis of finding that the element has been flanked by host sequence repeats and that different strains derived from natural population have different cytogenetical locations of the element. Homology survey between the Ins2 element and other sequences demonstrates this element is a new class of transposon.
