MamRTE1 (DF0001149)

RTE-BovB retrotransposon, MamRTE1 subfamily


MamRTE1 is an RTE LINE possibly ancestral to Plat_RTE1 (reconstructed from platypus). Subfamilies clearly existed, but have not been explored yet. MamSINE1, a chimera of a tRNA and 5' UTR segment from MamRTE1, was dependent on this LINE. Crocodilians harbor a related element, but MamRTE1 may represent a mammalian-specific subfamily.
