MER76 (DF0000931)

MER76 putative Long Terminal Repeat for ERVL endogenous retrovirus


MER76 is probably an LTR: it has 5 bp TSDs, and a (ATTAAA) polyA signal. 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.
