MER50C (DF0000808)

MER50C Long Terminal Repeat for ERV1 endogenous retrovirus


MER50C is a minor variant of the MER50-type LTRs. Possibly primate specific, or perhaps restricted to Euarchontoglires. 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.
