Internal region of ERV1 endogenous retrovirus, HERV17 subfamily
A brief description of the entry. Suggestions for modification to this description can be submitted using the adjacent pencil icon.
LTRs of the class I HERV17 (aka HERV-W) are listed as LTR17 sequences. HERV17 is related to HERV9/pHE1 and was relatively recently (<20 Mya) active as copies of the younger subfamilies are < 6% diverged from the consensus (primarily at CpG sites). This contains ORFs at the following approximate positions: 1938-3143 (gag), 3670-6912 (pol) and 6940-8568 (env). A copy of the latter has been exapted as the human syncytin gene.

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 8626 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 1422.4. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
