Abstract:
Tx1_XT is a young family of non-LTR retrotransposons that belong to the Tx1 group of the L1 clade. This group is characterized by a strong target-site specificity. The Xenopus tropicalis genome harbors about 100 copies of Tx1_XT. Most of them are inserted at the same site in piggyBac-N1_XT elements. The Tx1_XT consensus sequence is 85% identical to the Tx1 element from the Xenopus laevis genome.
