  1. Numbers represent percent identity. DG75 is an X-MLV isolated from the human DG-75 lymphoblastoid line [120], MCF1233 and AKV MLV are infectious viruses isolated from AKR strain mice. Bxv1 is the active endogenous xenotropic ERV found in strains such as C57BL and BALB/c. AKV has a duplicated enhancer in U3 that was not included in the analysis. Mpmv1 is a full-length ERV in the sequenced C57BL genome; it contains a 190 bp LTR insert that was not included in the analysis. GenBank accession numbers are provided for the 5 sequences; comparisons were done with VP62 XMRV NC_007815.
