M4DM is a nonautonomous DNA transposon.
A brief description of the entry. Suggestions for modification to this description can be submitted using the adjacent pencil icon.
The element is flanked by a 5bp target site duplication and it has 31bp TIRs.
Transposon insertions causing constitutive Sex-lethal activity in Drosophila melanogaster affect Sxl sex-specific transcript splicing.

|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 1435 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 607.3. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
