MLT1N2 (DF0001025)

MLT1N2 Long Terminal Repeat for ERVL-MaLR retrotransposon


MLT1N2 is unusual, as it contains features of both MLT1 elements and retroviral LTRs. Individual LTRs are ~72% similar to a consensus; which makes them likely links between MLT1 retroelements and "true" retroviruses. It has been renamed from the original, LTR67. 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).
