Autonomous DNA transposon from C. elegans
A brief description of the entry. Suggestions for modification to this description can be submitted using the adjacent pencil icon.
MARINER3_CE is a prototype of autonomous DNA transposon that was active in C.elegans genome very recently. There are about 100 copies of the element in the genome and they are ~99% identical to the MARINER3_CE consensus sequence. MARINER3_CE is flanked by TA target site duplications and it has perfect 31 bp-long terminal inverted repeats. There is no a single copy of MARINER3_CE, fixed in the genome, that preserves the transposase encoding ORF free of internal stop-codons.

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 1253 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 897. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
