UCON51 (DF0001186)

Repetitive element conserved in all mammals.


Typical TG..CA termini of LTRs and a clear 5 bp TSD suggest either an ERVL or Gypsy LTR. But 250 bp is a bit short and there is also not an obvious poly A site.


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