HELITRON2_CE is a Helitron DNA transposon.
A brief description of the entry. Suggestions for modification to this description can be submitted using the adjacent pencil icon.
HELITRON2_CE is a HELITRON-like DNA transposon. In many cases, HELITRON2_CE forms 7-9 kb minisatellite-like clusters composed from a ~200bp portion of HELITRON2_CE. HELITRON2_CE encodes a 904-aa protein, CEHEL2p, composed of the rolling-circle initiator and DNA helicase domains, putatively involved in proliferation of HELITRON2_CE copies.

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 5514 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 762.2. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
