X32_DNA (DF0001238)

Repetitive element conserved in all mammals.


~92-bp TIR. Very similar to Mariner-N7_Crp that was active in an ancestral crocodilian (or earlier). Found at orthologous sites in placentals and marsupials but not in monotremes.


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