MER110A (DF0000706)

MER110A Long Terminal Repeat for ERV1 endogenous retrovirus


Similar to MER110 in the 3' region, and more modestly, to MER90a across that same region. Note that MER stands for MEdium Reiteration frequency interspersed repeat. As such, MERs as a group are a grab bag of DNA transposons and retrotransposons.
