X5a_DNA (DF0001203)

Conserved repeat present in placental mammals and marsupials.


12-bp TIR. Similar to DNAX-5_AP in aphids and the autonomous Aspergillus pogo element Mariner-7_AF. Occurs on at least one location at orthologous sites in eutheria and metatheria.


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