MER34C (DF0000753)

MER34C Long Terminal Repeat for ERV1 endogenous retrovirus


74% similar to MER34B over the entire length. Distantly related to MER39, LTR48, LTR49, LTR29 and MER4D. Possibly also 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.
