Nematode CeRep1.1 repeat DNA
A brief description of the entry. Suggestions for modification to this description can be submitted using the adjacent pencil icon.
CEREP1A is a putative nonautonomous DNA transposon. This element is flanked by identical 383 bp-long terminal inverted repeats and it generates 8 bp-long duplications of a target site upon its integration in the genome. Presumably, HAT-related transposase is involved in propagation of CEREP1A

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 3401 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 462.2. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
