MER34B (DF0000751)

MER34B Long Terminal Repeat for ERV1 endogenous retrovirus


70% similar to MER34 over roughly the entire length. Possibly present in rodents. 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.


  1. Repetitive DNA in and around translocation breakpoints of the Philadelphia chromosome.
