MLT2B3 (DF0001031)

MLT2B3 Long Terminal Repeat for ERVL endogenous retrovirus


MLT2B3 is an ERVL LTR. However, a related LTR was "absorbed" by a mobile Ricksha DNA transposon; explaining this cross-Type homology. MLT2B3 contains a 50bp insertion compared to the otherwise closely related MLT2B2 variant.
