Internal region of ERVL endogenous retrovirus, HERVL subfamily
A brief description of the entry. Suggestions for modification to this description can be submitted using the adjacent pencil icon.
The associated long terminal repeat is MLT2 and its variants. HERVL has a potential leucine tRNA primer-binding site . The deduced protein sequence and phylogenetic analysis from  indicates that the HERVL pol gene is related to those in foamy retroviruses.

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 5654 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 1907.5. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
