HUERS-P3 (DF0000216)

Internal region of ERV1 endogenous retrovirus, HUERS-P3 subfamily


HUERS-P3 contains full-length gag and pol ORFs, and is associated with LTR9 long terminal repeats. Many apparently non-autonomous elements containing differing amounts of MER4-type and HUERS-P3-like internal sequences exist (see e.g. HUERS-P3b), suggesting that HUERS-P3 was one of the engines for the distribution of the MER4-group elements.
