MULE-MuDR DNA transposon, Ricksha subfamily (non-autonomous)
A brief description of the entry. Suggestions for modification to this description can be submitted using the adjacent pencil icon.
Ricksha has 79bp TIRs. Insertion sites are flanked by either 9bp TSDs, or by 9-10bp direct repeats that do not belong to the target sequence. Ricksha can be preliminarily classified as a non-autonomous DNA transposon related to the MuDR superfamily. It shares important structural hallmarks with MuDr-like transposons: 9-10 bp TSD; 5' GGG and 3' CCC termini; and TIRs longer than 70-bp. This Ricksha reconstruction is a composite element since it carries a 3' segment of an ERVL endogenous retrovirus (including its LTR, MLT2B). [See Ricksha positions ~184-904.] Ricksha has been mobile before this retroviral insertion, as several Ricksha copies have been detected lacking the HERVL-related insertion.
|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 3246 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 690.5. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
