X12_LINE (DF0001235)

Repetitive element conserved in all mammals.


Fragment. ORF1-357 encodes the N terminus of a Jockey-like pol, most similar to that of Vingi elements in crocodilians and Vingi-1_EE_pol in the hedgehog. Present at orthologous sites in placentals and platypus.


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