Repetitive element of unknown type, MER130 subfamily
A brief description of the entry. Suggestions for modification to this description can be submitted using the adjacent pencil icon.
Type unclear; full length not yet determined. Found in mammals, chicken, lizard, and 700 copies found in alligator, >100 copies in Laurasiatherian ancestor, and several copies in Xenopus. Several copies occur at conserved loci in all amniotes. Note that MER stands for MEdium Reiteration frequency interspersed repeat. As such, MERs as a group are a grab bag of DNA transposons and retrotransposons.

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 1586 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 279.9. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
