X1_DNA (DF0001305)

Conserved repetitive element present in placental mammals.


23 bp TIRs. Non-autonomous Tigger derivative. Beginning of the ORF at 377-625 encodes a peptide similar to the beginning of Tigger transposases like Mariner-3_Crp_tp and MarsTigger6_tp.


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