UCON78 (DF0001180)

DNA transposon conserved in all mammals.


443 bp palindrome (about 80% perfect, with biggest difference between 35 and 100 bp from termini). TTAA perhaps represent the TSD.


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