Helitron DNA transposon, Helitron2Na_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. While named a helitron, this 324bp TE model its classification is tentative. There is suggestive similarity to a non-autonomous helitron in the sea urchin S. purpuratus.
Note: Uncertain classification.
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 324 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 208.5. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
