PiggyBac DNA transposon, MER75B subfamily (non-autonomous)
A brief description of the entry. Suggestions for modification to this description can be submitted using the adjacent pencil icon.
MER75B has 14 bp TIRs. MER75B is related to an autonomous piggyBac element that has apparently had its tranposase "domesticated" as a simian-specific gene: PGBD4, PiggyBac-Derived 4 (NP_736609.2). Most differences between MER75 and MER75B are in the internal region. Relative to MER75, MER75B has a single base substitution in the terminal inverted repeats. 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 243 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 193.8. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
