LTR32 (DF0000488)

LTR32 (Long Terminal Repeat) for ERVL endogenous retrovirus


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.
