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 ten thousand times.
