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.
MARINER2_CA is a putative active autonomous DNA transposon; there are about 50 identical copies of MARINER2_CA fixed in the C.elegans genome. MARINER2_CA is flanked by TA target site duplications and it has perfect 27 bp-long terminal inverted repeats. Transposase is encoded by a single ORF (position 150-1151). MARINER2 transposase is most close to the one encoded by the human MARINER element (42% similarity and 60% identity between amino acid sequences).

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 1242 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 941.9. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
