Internal part of retrotransposon CER1; gypsy/Ty3 group.
A brief description of the entry. Suggestions for modification to this description can be submitted using the adjacent pencil icon.
LTRs of CER1 are named as LTRCER1. CDS 730..7548 /product="gag, pol and env protein precursor" A Gypsy/Ty3-class retrotransposon (Cer1) has 492 bp terminal repeats and one long (6819 nt) open reading frame. Alignment with other Gypsy-class elements and with retroviruses indicates that an env gene occupies the 3' 1.2 kb of the open reading frame. Since Gypsy of Drosophila has been shown to be an infectious element, it is possible that Gypsy-like elements are active in C. elegans.
2.2 Mb of contiguous nucleotide sequence from chromosome III of C. elegans.

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 7881 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 243.5. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
