L2 (LINE2) retrotransposon
A brief description of the entry. Suggestions for modification to this description can be submitted using the adjacent pencil icon.
L2 (LINE2) spread before the mammalian radiation, and copies are only 65-75% similar to the consensus. The 5' end is probably incomplete. The 3' end is also incomplete, but this terminus is extended by three model variants: L2a_3end, L2b_3end, and L2c_3end. Note that, whereas L1 is A- and purine-rich in the coding strand, L2 is C- and pyrimidine-rich.
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 3082 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 398.3. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
