BLAST searches of 61 equine microsatellite sequences revealed two related families of retroposons. The first family included seven markers, all of which showed significant homology to the Equine Repetitive Element-1 (ERE-1) Short Interspersed Nucleotide Element (SINE) sequence. Length of homology ranged from 76 to 171 bases with identities to the ERE-1 consensus sequence ranging from 71% to 83%. The second family referred to as Equine Repetitive Element-2 (ERE-2) has a consensus sequence that showed homology to ERE-1 over approximately 60 bases. These 60 bases comprised subunit I. Sequence comparisons for the two retroposons led to the identification of a subunit II, subunit III, as well as the tRNAser subunit. The subunit structure of ERE-1 was tRNAser-I-II. By contrast, the subunit structure of ERE-2 was I-III-III. The nine markers related to ERE-2 showed homology lengths ranging from 84 to 163 bases with identities ranging from 75% to 99%.
