MmERV

This page provides information about the mouse retrovirus MmERV (Lindell Bromham, Francis Clark and Jeff. J. McKee. Discovery of a novel murine type-C retrovirus by datamining. Journal of Virology, 75:3053-3057 (March 2001)).

Here is the MmERV reference sequence.

We have identified 11 copies of this virus in currently available (November 2000 ) Mus musculus genome sequence. These are detailed in the table below.
