Helitron DNA transposon, Helitron1Nb_Mam subfamily
A brief description of the entry. Suggestions for modification to this description can be submitted using the adjacent pencil icon.
Helitrons are thought to transpose with a rolling circle mechanism, and represent a distinct class of DNA transposon. Helitron1Nb_Mam represents a non-autonomous helitron fossil found broadly in mammals. Helitron1Nb_Mam is identical to Helitron1Na_Mam except over the region 696-913 in "1Nb" and 696-859 in "1Na", where they are unrelated.

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 1116 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 318.7. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
