This part is associated with Tn5 transposon devices

Tn5 transposase is a popular enzyme that generates protein-DNA complexes called transposomes from DNAs flanked by "terminal repeats". These terminal repeats, or TR's, are specific cis elements. The transposomes are highly reactive and insert the DNA contained within them randomly into other DNAs (such as a genome). Unlike Sleeping Beauty and piggyBac which comes from eukaryotic organisms, Tn5 comes from enterobacterial tranposons.
