REP522 -- largely palindromic, unclassified interspersed repeat
A brief description of the entry. Suggestions for modification to this description can be submitted using the adjacent pencil icon.
REP522 was originally called a telomeric satellite, even though in human, this 1.8Kb sequence is not found in tandem arrays, nor is it particularly restricted to telomeric regions. The central 1/3rd forms a >600bp imperfect palindrome. Other parts of these element display similarity to both LINE and LTR retrotransposons; to cut-and-paste DNA transposons; even to a Helitron! It is unclear how much of this is chimeric homology vs false positive.

Note: Uncertain classification.
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 1817 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 431.6. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
