MER52A 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.
MER52A is associated with MER52-int, and has 4 bp TSDs. The originally reported orientation has been reversed. 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.
Identification of new medium reiteration frequency repeats in the genomes of Primates, Rodentia and Lagomorpha.

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 1755 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 900.4. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
