X15_LINE (DF0001280)

Repetitive element conserved in all mammals.


Fragment. ORF 1-360 encodes the N terminus of a pol most similar to those of L2 LINEs in fishes (Danio, Takifugu, Latimeria), including Maui. Found at orthologous sites in theria and platypus.


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