Eulor4 (DF0000129)

Eulor4 (Euteleostomi-conserved low frequency repeat 4)


Putative DNA transposon (assignment unclear). Termini are not completely defined. Eulor4 contains four diverged, tandem, palindromic units. The full element probably continues like that. Found in Xenopus; >25 copies in human, ~40 in platypus, ~70 in alligator.
