Eulor1 (DF0000121)

Eulor1 (Euteleostomi-conserved low frequency repeat 1)


Eulor1 forms a near-perfect hairpin and is present in the chicken (~80 copies) and mammalian genomes (100-150 copies). It may represent an incomplete non-autonomous DNA transposon or a mixture of related DNA transposons of different length.
