R2-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.
This is a young family of HERO non-LTR retrotransposons. The consensus sequence was built based on multiple alignment of several copies less than 2% divergent from each other.
An active non-LTR retrotransposon with tandem structure in the compact genome of the pufferfish Tetraodon nigroviridis.

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 3639 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 476.3. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
