BLOOD_I (DF0001546)

BLOOD_I is an internal portion of the BLOOD LTR retrotransposon

Description

LTR of BLOOD retrotransposon is BLOOD_LTR. BLOOD insertions have 4 bp long target site duplications (all targets are different). Some of the copies are identical, including LTRs. BLOOD is presumably an active LTR-retrotransposon. site duplications (all targets are different). Some of the copies are identical, including LTRs. BLOOD is presumably an active LTR-retrotransposon. BLOOD is related to MDG1, DM412 and TABOR retrotransposons found in Drosophila.
