Relative distribution of non-LTR (SINE, LINE), LTR and transposable elements (TEs) within several bovine PAG genes. A. Each colored bar represents the relative distribution of the corresponding element in each boPAG gene. The TE elements were shown on the -X axis. The relative % of the sequence contributed by each element is shown on the Y-axis. The definition of the acronyms used in the figure is as follow: LTR: long terminal repeat; SINE: short interspersed element; LINE: long interspersed element; MIR: mammalian wild- interspersed repeat (sub-class of SINE); RTE: retrotransposable elements; MaLR: mammalian apparent long terminal repeat; MER: medium reiterated element. B. and C. show the cumulative total of the number of TEs, as well as the % contribution to the sequence of individual boPAGs. B: represents the cumulative total of the all the different kinds of the elements in individual PAG genes. C: shows the % make-up of the PAG genes by the TEs.
