ID4 (DF0004188)

tRNA-derived SINE (short retroposon) from Muridae.


About 50,000 copies in the mouse and rate genomes, with on average 73% similarity to the consensus outside CpGs. The very high substitution level of the copies is partly due to the high CpG-content and the likely existence of multiple hard-to-define subfamilies in this short sequence.
