Two distinct members of the LINE-1 (L1) family in Peromyscus were characterized. The two clones, denoted L1Pm55 and L1Pm62, were 1.5 kb and 1.8 kb in length, respectively, and align to the identical region of the L1 sequence of Mus domesticus. Sequence similarity was on the order of 70% between L1Pm55 and L1Pm62, which approximates that between either Peromyscus sequence and Mus Ll. L1Pm62 represents a more prevalent subfamily than L1Pm55. L1Pm62 exists in about 500 copies per haploid genome… CONTINUE READING
