hAT-Tip100 DNA transposon, MER45R subfamily (non-autonomous)
A brief description of the entry. Suggestions for modification to this description can be submitted using the adjacent pencil icon.
MER45R is a hAT-like DNA transposon encoding a protein related to that of Zaphod and "activator-like" transposases in Arabidopsis (e.g. GID 4538984). It is an internal deletion product of an autonomous element (N-terminal half of gene is missing). It has 15 bp TIRs, 8 bp TSDs. Initially reported in the opposite orientation. 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 1581 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 388.2. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
