Non-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 nonautonomous transposon is characterized by ~7.3-kb-bp terminal inverted repeats and 6-bp target site duplications. The consensus sequence was built based on multiple alignment of several copies that are >90% identical to each other. This nonautonomous family was derived from the autonomous Polinton-1_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 15469 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 390.2. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
