This part is associated with phiC31 integration devices

phiC31 is a bacteriophage integrase. It is somewhat similar in mechanism to Cre recombinase, but it acts on the asymmetric sites attB and attP. It causes these sequences to be recombined to generate attL and attR sequences. This system is useful for integrating large DNAs site-specifically into genomes.
