NOMAD_I (DF0001678)

NOMAD_I is an internal part of retrovirus NOMAD.


NOMAD_I is an internal part of the NOMAD endogenous retrovirus flanked by the NOMAD_LTR long terminal repeat. NOMAD was active recently since its provirus copies are flanked by identical LTRs and its ORFs does not have many false stop-codons. NOMAD generates 4 bp-long target-site duplications [1].
