Title:
SINE2-2_SP, a family of SINE2 retrotransposons in the sea urchin genome.
Journal:

Abstract:
The genome harbors ~2000 copies of SINE2-2_SP elements.The consensus sequence represents a major young family of SINE2-2_SP elements (they are >95% identical to the consensus sequence). The 70-bp 5' terminus was derived from a Lys tRNA pol III region. The 131-bp 5' terminal portions of SINE2-2_SP and SINE2-1_SP are 77% identical to each other. The autonomous non-LTR retrotransposon involved in proliferation of SINE2-2_SP is not known yet. Given the lack of target site duplications and 3' microsatellites in SINE2-2_SP, the unknown autonomous element is expected to be a member of the CR1 clade.
