TRANSIB4 is a DNA transposon, a consensus sequence.
A brief description of the entry. Suggestions for modification to this description can be submitted using the adjacent pencil icon.
Transib4 belongs to the Transib superfamily of DNA transposons. It generated 5-bp duplications of the CantG target sites upon its integration into the genome, and has 40-bp terminal inverted repeats. The encoded transposase is not perfectly recovered since the genome harbors only a small number of Transib4 copies, which are damaged by mutations. Transib4 encodes the Transib4p transposase (positions 497-2219).

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 2610 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 329. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
