Repetitive element conserved in all mammals.
A brief description of the entry. Suggestions for modification to this description can be submitted using the adjacent pencil icon.
Typical TG..CA termini of LTRs and a clear 5 bp TSD suggest either an ERVL or Gypsy LTR. But 250 bp is a bit short and there is also not an obvious poly A site.
Distinct groups of repetitive families preserved in mammals correspond to different periods of regulatory innovations in vertebrates.

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 250 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 172.6. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
