HERVI (DF0000185)

Internal region of ERV1 endogenous retrovirus, HERVI subfamily


HERVI is flanked by LTR10B long terminal repeats. Although none of the HERVI elements have retained long open reading frames, stretches with homology to various parts of the Moloney murine leukemia virus (Mo-MuLV) proteins were detected [1].
