MLT1A (DF0001126)

MLT1A Long Terminal Repeat for ERVL-MaLR retrotransposon


MLT1A (Mammalian LTR Transposon) has 5 bp TSDs. This is an intermediate subfamily between MSTD and MLT1C. 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).

Synonyms: MLT1A0
