MLT1B (DF0001127)

MLT1B Long Terminal Repeat for ERVL-MaLR retrotransposon


MLT1B (Mammalian LTR Transposon) has 5 bp TSDs. 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).
