ERV1 endogenous retrovirus, HERV-Fc2 subfamily
A brief description of the entry. Suggestions for modification to this description can be submitted using the adjacent pencil icon.
HERV-Fc2 may be single-copy in human (hg18) and chimp (panTro2), and appears to be hominidae specific . Curiously, LTR divergence (~5%) suggests an older insertion event.
Characterization of the low-copy HERV-Fc family: evidence for recent integrations in primates of elements with coding envelope genes.

Number of matches to this model that meet the "Gathering" threshold and more stringent "Trusted" threshold. For each threshold, two numbers are shown: (1) the number of matches to this model after removing redundant hits to other models ("non-redundant"), and (2) the total number of matches above threshold, including those with better scoring matches to other models ("all hits").
The model is 7250 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 521. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
