MER4D (DF0000801)

MER4D Long Terminal Repeat for ERV1 endogenous retrovirus


MER4D is a MER4 variant characterized by a 192 bp insertion between roughly positions 191-193 of MER4B. Originally, MER4D contained a chimaeric 5' end. 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.
