X26_DNA (DF0001162)

Conserved repeat present in placental mammals and marsupials.


Complete 3end, missing 5end. Contains a coding region remnant from pos 177-488 for a peptide 68% identical (78% similar) to the Tigger transposase Mariner-2_AMi_tp.


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