Putative TcMar-Tigger DNA transposon, MERX subfamily
A brief description of the entry. Suggestions for modification to this description can be submitted using the adjacent pencil icon.
MERX has 22 bp TIRs that show some similarity to Tigger DNA transposons, including Tigger8. MERX appears to have been introduced into an early eutherian ancestor. 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.
|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 756 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 278.1. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
