MSTD (DF0001045)

MSTD Long Terminal Repeat for ERVL-MaLR retrotransposon


MSTD has 5 bp TSDs, and it represents an intermediate subfamily between MSTC and MLT1A LTRs. 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).
