Helitron DNA transposon, Helitron3Na_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. Helitron3Na_Mam represents a non-autonomous helitron fossil also found in other mammals, though it is not clearly similar to the other human helitron models.
Helitrons on a roll: eukaryotic rolling-circle transposons.

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 486 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 271.3. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
