UCON40 (DF0001224)

Conserved repeat present in placental mammals and marsupials.


TA TSDs. Closest match to the transposase of the Crocodylian-wide Mariner-5_Crp. Absent from platypus, but present in opossum genome.


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