LTR retrotransposon NINJA, internal sequence.
A brief description of the entry. Suggestions for modification to this description can be submitted using the adjacent pencil icon.
This is the internal sequence of LTR retrotransposon NINJA, its LTR is NINJA_LTR. It contains two open reading frames (ORFs), and the pol region is divided between two ORFs in contrast to the organization of other retrotransposons. An alignment analysis of the reverse transcriptase sequences suggested that the NINJA element is the first Drosophila retrotransposon belonging to the PAO subgroup .

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 6011 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 934.2. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
