Eutr5 (DF0001258)

Ancient interspersed repetitive sequence from eutherian mammals.


>71% identical to consensus. Origin unknown. More than 200 copies in eutherian mammals. Not present in opossum. ; but it shows no similarity to known SINEs and LINEs. Provisionally guessed LTR because of TG...CA termini but no obvious TSDs nor an obvious (AWTAAA) poly A signal in either orientation. GA-rich 5' end and C-rich satellite-like 3' tail support classification as a SINE. Present at orthologous sites in elephants and humans, absent in opossum.
