UCON37 (DF0001211)

Conserved repeat present in placental mammals and marsupials.


17 bp TIRs, 8 bp TSDs with slight preference for GTTTAAAC. Terminal and subterminal regions match a number of Activator-like hATs.


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