Eulor2A (DF0000125)

Eulor2A (Euteleostomi-conserved low frequency repeat 2A)


Putative DNA transposon (assignment unclear). Present in chicken (~200 copies) and mammals (~150 copies). Split into two subfamilies (Eulor2A and 2B), differing mainly by a 31bp indel. Like Eulor1, Eulor2 subfamilies also have a characteristic hairpin-tail structure. Hairpin (roughly) pos 8-188.
