UCON73 (DF0001159)

Repetitive element conserved in all mammals.


14 bp TIRs. 8 bp TSDs with a bias for YTTTAAAR target sites. Reverse complement matches UCON105. Present in therians and monotremes.


  1. Distinct groups of repetitive families preserved in mammals correspond to different periods of regulatory innovations in vertebrates.
