Eulor9B (DF0000140)

Eulor9B (Euteleostomi-conserved low frequency repeat 9B)


Putative DNA transposon (assignment unclear). Present in mammals and birds (~40 copies). Has a hairpin-tail structure typical for all Eulor repeats. However, termini are poorly defined. Eulor9B is slightly more similar to the reverse complement of Eulor9A.
