LTR32 (Long Terminal Repeat) for ERVL endogenous retrovirus
A brief description of the entry. Suggestions for modification to this description can be submitted using the adjacent pencil icon.
Instances of this family may be subdivided at least in two subfamilies. LTR32 sequences belong presumably to the endogenous retrovirus HERV32, related to the human retroviruses HERV18 and HERVL, and mouse retrovirus MERVL. Pol protein shows significant similarity to the Pol proteins encoded by MERVL, human and simian foamy viruses, fish retrovirus (walleye) and Gypsy-related transposon MAG from silkworm. Also, primate-specific rather than eutherian- or even euarchontoglire-wide.
Number of matches to this model that meet the "Gathering" threshold and more stringent "Trusted" threshold. For each threshold, two numbers are shown: (1) the number of matches to this model after removing redundant hits to other models ("non-redundant"), and (2) the total number of matches above threshold, including those with better scoring matches to other models ("all hits").
The model is 457 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 302.5. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
