MIRb (Mammalian-wide Interspersed Repeat - variant b)
A brief description of the entry. Suggestions for modification to this description can be submitted using the adjacent pencil icon.
MIRb is a pan-mammalian SINE with a 5' end derived from a tRNA, a central deeply-conserved CORE region (shared with other MIRs), and a 3' terminal ~55bp related to an L2 LINE .

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 268 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 187. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
