MSTA Long Terminal Repeat for ERVL-MaLR retrotransposon
A brief description of the entry. Suggestions for modification to this description can be submitted using the adjacent pencil icon.
MSTA has 5 bp TSDs. This represents an intermediate subfamily between THE1C and MSTB. 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).

Number of matches to this model that meet the "Gathering" threshold and more stringent "Trusted" threshold. For each threshold, two numbers are shown: (1) the number of matches to this model after removing redundant hits to other models ("non-redundant"), and (2) the total number of matches above threshold, including those with better scoring matches to other models ("all hits").
The model is 428 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 357.3. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
