UCON44 (DF0001259)

Repetitive element conserved in all mammals.


TA TSDs. 16-18 bp imperfect TIRs. Closely related to Mariner-N1_XT in Xenopus, but with the lack of an autonomous element or coding sequence similarity, a more precise classification than TcMar is not yet possible.


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