Drosophila melanogaster BURDOCK retrotransposon - internal sequence.
A brief description of the entry. Suggestions for modification to this description can be submitted using the adjacent pencil icon.
BURDOCK is a short retrotransposon with long terminal repeats and a single open reading frame (ORF). Its LTR is BURDOK_LTR. LTRs flanking BURDOCK_I in U89994 GenBank sequence are identical, it may indicate that BURDOCK is an active element. The polypeptide encoded by the BURDOCK ORF contains two adjacent regions homologous to the gag and pol polyproteins of the Gypsy mobile element. The target site sequence of the BURDOCK insertions is similar to the Drosophila topoisomerase II cleavage site.

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 5860 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 1136.9. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
