LINE2A_CE (DF0001416)

LINE2A_CE is a non-LTR retrotransposon


LINE2A_CE is a non-LTR retrotransposon related to the CR1 superfamily. Two open reading frames, ORF1 (position 71-883) and ORF2 (position 953-3955) encode two proteins. The second protein is a CR1-like reverse transcriptase. Protein encoded by ORF1 is C.elegans specific. LINE2A_CE does not generate target-site duplications upon its integration in the genome; its 3'-tail ends by (TATA)n.
