AmnSINE2 (DF0000068)

Aminiota SINE2


The copy number ranges from ~100 in the human genome to ~178 in the chicken genome. 45% of human copies are in highly conserved regions. Shows distant similarity to Leu tRNA. Tentatively classified as SINE element. Inverted from UCON3 original. Reference coords 1-78:tRNA-Leu-TTG, 137-264:Deu core, remainder must match an as yet unknown LINE.

Synonyms: UCON3
