MER34 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.
MER34 is an LTR of a MER4-int group endogenous retrovirus. This has 4 bp TSDs, and shares similarities to MER39, LTR29, LTR48 and LTR49. Initially reported in the opposite orientation. 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.
Repetitive DNA in and around translocation breakpoints of the Philadelphia chromosome.

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 542 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 334.3. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
