L1-like non-LTR retrotransposon from zebrafish
A brief description of the entry. Suggestions for modification to this description can be submitted using the adjacent pencil icon.
L1-8_DR is a family of L1-like non-LTR retrotransposon. There are ~100 copies of L1-8_DR in the zebrafish genome. They are ~2% divergent from the consensus sequence. The consensus sequence is incomplete (a ~300-bp 5' end is not present). The consensus sequence encodes two proteins: a 290-aa L1-8_DR1p (positions 1-820) and a 1271-aa L1-8_DR2p (positions 1248-5060). These proteins are most close to corresponding proteins encoded by other L1-like elements. L1-8_DR1p is a putative RNA/DNA binding protein, and L1-8_DR2p is composed of the AP endonuclease and reverse transcriptase domains.
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 5248 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 887.1. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
