MER39B (DF0000759)

MER39B Long Terminal Repeat for ERV1 endogenous retrovirus


MER39B has 4 bp TSDs. It is a variant of MER39; both are members 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.
