Internal sequence of an endogenous retrovirus from zebrafish
A brief description of the entry. Suggestions for modification to this description can be submitted using the adjacent pencil icon.
ERV2-I_DR is an internal portion of the ERV2_DR endogenous retrovirus. It is flanked by 99% identical ERV2-LTR_DR. ERV2_DR belongs to the class I of endogenous retroviruses (4-bp TSD). It encodes ERV2p, a 455-aa gag-like protein that is closely related to this from ERV1_DR. The C-terminal portion of this protein includes the zinc knuckle motif present in gag proteins of many retroviruses. ERV2-I_DR is 72% identical to ERV1-I_DR.
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 3091 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 1364.1. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
