Eulor5B (DF0000131)

Eulor5B (Euteleostomi-conserved low frequency repeat 5B)


Putative DNA transposon (assignment unclear). Present in ~50 copies in mammals and chicken, also detected in Xenopus. The sequence is an (imperfect) hairpin. Other members of the Eulor5/6 group all have a non-palindromic region downstream, but this his not been detected in Eulor5B yet.
