MARE6 (DF0001184)

Repetitive element conserved in all mammals.


ORF from 470-1289 (current end) encoded a protein similar to KenoDr1_gag and KenoFr1_gag of Tx1 elements in zebrafish and puffer fish, respectively. Some orthologous copies shared with marsupials


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