MER39 Long Terminal Repeat for ERV1 endogenous retrovirus
A brief description of the entry. Suggestions for modification to this description can be submitted using the adjacent pencil icon.
MER39 has 4 bp TSDs, and is a member of a closely interrelated group of LTRs including MER21, MER34, LTR29, LTR48 and LTR49. Original orientation  has been changed. 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.
Dense Alu clustering and a potential new member of the NF kappa B family within a 90 kilobase HLA class III segment.

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 707 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 408.2. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
