Long Interspersed Nucleotide Element (LINE) repeats
Long Interspersed Nucleotide
Elements (LINE) repeats are typically
several kilobases in length, and are dispersed between protein-coding
regions at multiple loci throughout the genome. In humans, the
Li repeat family occurs as a
6,400 bp element repeated more than 10,000 times.
