RTE-BovB retrotransposon, MamRTE1 subfamily
A brief description of the entry. Suggestions for modification to this description can be submitted using the adjacent pencil icon.
MamRTE1 is an RTE LINE possibly ancestral to Plat_RTE1 (reconstructed from platypus). Subfamilies clearly existed, but have not been explored yet. MamSINE1, a chimera of a tRNA and 5' UTR segment from MamRTE1, was dependent on this LINE. Crocodilians harbor a related element, but MamRTE1 may represent a mammalian-specific subfamily.
Distinct groups of repetitive families preserved in mammals correspond to different periods of regulatory innovations in vertebrates.

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 3812 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 331.8. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
