MER68 Long Terminal Repeat for ERVL endogenous retrovirus
A brief description of the entry. Suggestions for modification to this description can be submitted using the adjacent pencil icon.
MER68 has 5 bp TSDs, and is similar to MER77. Previously known as MER68A, it was initially presented in the opposite orientation. This LTR and MER68-int form a complete MER68 retroelement. 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.
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 563 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 393.5. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
