MARE4 (DF0001236)

Conserved repeat present in placental mammals and marsupials.


13 bp imperfect TIRs. Termini similar to those of some Tip100 elements, like hAT-1001d2_Croc, hAT-14N1_ZM and DNA8-89_AP. Possible 8 bp TSDs remnants. A few at orthologous sites in marsupials; absent from platypus.


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