A brief description of the entry. Suggestions for modification to this description can be submitted using the adjacent pencil icon.
The copy number ranges from ~100 in the human genome to ~178 in the chicken genome. 45% of human copies are in highly conserved regions. Shows distant similarity to Leu tRNA. Tentatively classified as SINE element. Inverted from UCON3 original. Reference coords 1-78:tRNA-Leu-TTG, 137-264:Deu core, remainder must match an as yet unknown LINE.

Number of matches to this model that meet the "Gathering" threshold and more stringent "Trusted" threshold. For each threshold, two numbers are shown: (1) the number of matches to this model after removing redundant hits to other models ("non-redundant"), and (2) the total number of matches above threshold, including those with better scoring matches to other models ("all hits").
The model is 358 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 203.9. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
