MLT1C (DF0001003)

MLT1C Long Terminal Repeat for ERVL-MaLR retrotransposon


MLT1C (Mammalian LTR Transposon) has 5 bp TSDs. This is an intermediate subfamily between MLT1B and MLT1D. Note that a full-length ERV-MaLR (Mammalian apparent LTR retrotransposon) element is derived from an ERV (Endogenous Retrovirus), but only contains the Gag gene (that is, no Pol or Env).
