MER90 (DF0000949)

MER90 Long Terminal Repeat for ERV1 endogenous retrovirus


MER90 has 4 bp TSDs. In some elements, the 40 bp tandem repeat from roughly pos. 29-109, occurs only once. 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.
