Title:
L3_ME: a non-LTR retrotransposon from Tammar wallaby.
Journal:
Repbase Reports 6(4), 184-184 (2006)
Abstract:
On average wallaby consensus is 71.5% identical to individual sequences. Identity to human consensus sequence is ~67%, this suggests that L3 elements continued to retrotranspose after the separation of eutherians and marsupials. This is corroborated by the observation that the number of detectable L3 elements in wallaby is about ten times higher than in humans. The estimated number of copies in the wallaby genome is 170,000.
