L1 retrotransposon, HAL1 subfamily
A brief description of the entry. Suggestions for modification to this description can be submitted using the adjacent pencil icon.
HAL1 resembles half of a LINE1 element, as it encoded a protein closely related to LINE1 ORF1, but has no similarity to ORF2. The HAL1 3' end (position ~2300-2510) matches 3' UTRs of the oldest L1 subfamilies. The precise relationship between HAL1 and L1's is unresolved.

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 2507 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 507.8. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
