Mam_R4 (DF0000984)

Mam_R4 -- Dong-R4 retrotransposon (LINE)


This is the first Dong retrotransposon found in tetrapods, originally identified in platypus as Plat_R4. Because closely related sequences are found in Theria (non-monotreme mammals), this has been renamed to Mam_R4. This reconstruction contains all of "ORF2" (roughly pos. 244-3732), although the start condon is unclear. ORF1 is usually absent in Dong elements, and is not evident here.
