MER4B 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.
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.
Novel families of interspersed repetitive elements from the human genome.

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 610 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 474. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
