UCON58 (DF0001274)

Conserved repeat present in placental mammals and marsupials.


Positions 4-190 form a hairpin with 292-475, with intervening loop from 191-291. Classification as possible DNA transposon only based on that. Absent from monotremes, present in marsupials and eutheria.


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