Autonomous Maverick/Polinton DNA transposon from zebrafish
A brief description of the entry. Suggestions for modification to this description can be submitted using the adjacent pencil icon.
This transposon is characterized by ~350-bp terminal inverted repeats and 6-bp target site duplications (some copies have extra 5'-AG and TC-3' at their termini). The consensus sequence was built based on multiple alignment of several copies that are >90% identical to each other. It encodes a family B DNA polymerase (POLB-1_DR), retroviral integrase (INT-1_DR), ATPase (ATP-1_DR), cysteine protease (PRO-1_DR) and additional four unclassified proteins (PX-1_DR, PW-1_DR, PY-1_DR, and PZ-1_DR), conserved in Polintons from different species.

|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 18485 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 2986.8. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
