Penelope1_Vert (DF0001208)

Penelope1_Vert subfamily


Part of the 3'end of a Penelope probably active some 350 million years ago. Conserved copies found in Xenopus, alligator, turtle, chicken, platypus, and our boreoeutherian ancestor. The ORF from pos 2-946 encodes a protein similar the end of Neptune1_Nv_pol. The last 130 bp are likely to be a terminal direct repeat, though the other end is not yet defined. Part of the coding region (current pos 182-463) was originally named UCON13 as it appeared in a number of ultraconserved regions.
