PRIMA4 is an autonomous, endogenous retrovirus with 4bp TSDs. The full element is comprised of this internal region, and the long terminal repeats, PRIMA4_LTR. The PRIMA4 is an ancient ERV, related to the Class I retroviruses, including leukemia viruses. PRIMA4 is also one of the key factors in the MER4-group evolution. MER4-int is a non-autonomous derivative of PRIMA4 (analogous to a relation between MER41-int and PRIMA41).
