UCON81 (DF0001207)

Conserved repeat present in placental mammals and marsupials.


Appears to be a TIR of a hAT element. Reverse-complemented to match Charlies. Not present in monotremes but found in marsupials. There is a closely related young element in turtles.


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