TcMar-Tigger DNA transposon, Tigger4 subfamily (autonomous)
A brief description of the entry. Suggestions for modification to this description can be submitted using the adjacent pencil icon.
Tigger4 has 23 bp TIRS, and "TA" TSDs. It has been shown  that neurolepsy-related Jerky gene in human and mouse is a recruited transposase from Tigger4.

|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 2731 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 573.7. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
