Eulor11 (DF0000123)

Eulor11 (Euteleostomi-conserved low frequency repeat 11)


Putative DNA transposon (assignment unclear). Identified in both mammals and birds. Reconstructed from chicken DNA. Like most Eulor-type repeats, this repeat has a secondary structure (imperfect hairpin) followed by a 50 bp "tail." The tail region is less conserved in mammals than the secondary structure. Over 300 copies in alligator. Termini uncertain; no similar TEs.
