UCON55 (DF0001314)

Conserved repeat present in placental mammals and marsupials.


Terminal TA of the consensus may or may not represent TSDs. First 58 and final 36 bp matches those of Mariner-5_SM and SMAR28, both Tiggers in the planarian Schmidtea mediterranea genome. The 5'-end is determined. The 5'-end sequence shows distant similarity with tRNA, particularly A and B box.


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