FW2_DM 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.
FW2_DM belongs to the JOCKEY clade of non-LTR retrotransposons. Members of this family are ~95% identical to the FW2_DM consensus sequence. Therefore, this family was active a few million years ago. The FW2_DM consensus sequence includes two open reading frames that encode the 417-aa FW2_DM-ORF1p (positions 2-1249) and 859-aa FW_DM-ORF2p (positions 1256-3832). These proteins are similar to the Jockey-like DNA/RNA-binding and endonuclease/reverse transcriptase proteins, respectively. ~500-bp 5' terminal portion of FW2_DM is not reconstructed yet. There are 10 copies of FW2_DM present in the sequenced portion of the D. melanogaster genome.
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 3961 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 1413.5. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
