Internal region of ERV1 endogenous retrovirus, MER61-int subfamily


MER61-int ERV is flanked by MER61 LTRs. The primer binding site (PBS) is similar to that of HERVK9. 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.
