Gain of Sp1 sites and loss of repressor sequences associated with a young, transcriptionally active subset of HERV-H endogenous long terminal repeats.

Abstract

HERV-H sequences comprise a large family of human endogenous retrovirus-like elements. Previous DNA sequence comparisons of HERV-H long terminal repeats (LTRs) have led to their classification into three subtypes, Types I, Ia, and II. Type Ia appears to have been generated by recombination between Type I and Type II LTRs. These subtypes differ in… (More)
