MER68C (DF0000913)

MER68C Long Terminal Repeat for ERVL endogenous retrovirus


MER68C is found at orthologous sites in eutherian genomes, including Afrotheria, but is absent from marsupials. 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.
