SINE retroelement from zebrafish
A brief description of the entry. Suggestions for modification to this description can be submitted using the adjacent pencil icon.
Similar to Mustelus manazo (shark) SINE elements: HE1_SINE and HE1_MM . HE1 SINEs are similar to MER6 DNA transposons from the human genome, from which the name Mermaid stems.
Mermaid: a family of short interspersed repetitive elements widespread in vertebrates.

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 402 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 223.9. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
