X33a_DNA (DF0001167)

Mariner DNA conserved in all mammals.


Present at orthologous sites in all mammals. Similar at start and end to Mariner-N10_Crp in an ancestral crocodilian, but not the same element.


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