LINE2A_CE is a non-LTR retrotransposon
A brief description of the entry. Suggestions for modification to this description can be submitted using the adjacent pencil icon.
LINE2A_CE is a non-LTR retrotransposon related to the CR1 superfamily. Two open reading frames, ORF1 (position 71-883) and ORF2 (position 953-3955) encode two proteins. The second protein is a CR1-like reverse transcriptase. Protein encoded by ORF1 is C.elegans specific. LINE2A_CE does not generate target-site duplications upon its integration in the genome; its 3'-tail ends by (TATA)n.
Evolutionary relationships among the members of an ancient class of non-LTR retrotransposons found in the nematode Caenorhabditis 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 4082 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 693.4. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
