LOOPER1_DM DNA transposon
A brief description of the entry. Suggestions for modification to this description can be submitted using the adjacent pencil icon.
LOOPER1_DM belongs to the Looper/PiggyBac superfamily of "cut and paste" DNA transposons. This family was active in a recent past (several million years ago). It has 16-bp TIRs (one mismatch) and its copies are flanked by the 4-bp TTAA target site duplications. LOOPER1_DM encodes the Looper1DMp transposase (positions 505-1542). Looper1DMp is closer to Looper/PiggyBac transposases identified in the human genome than to the PiggyBac transposase found in moth.
|Class||Cut and Paste|
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 1881 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 418.4. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
