hAT-Charlie DNA transposon, MER106A subfamily
A brief description of the entry. Suggestions for modification to this description can be submitted using the adjacent pencil icon.
The original MER106 element was unclassified. MER106A has been classified as a hAT-like DNA transposon based on identification of 14 bp imperfect, terminal inverted repeats, and 8 bp target site duplications (with a preference of NTCTAGAN). MER stands for MEdium Reiteration frequency interspersed repeat. As such, MERs as a group are a grab bag of DNA transposons and retrotransposons.
|Class||Cut and Paste|
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 236 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 202.8. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
