BS3_DM (DF0001550)

BS3_DM is a non-LTR retrotransposon


BS3_DM belongs to the JOCKEY clade of non-LTR retrotransposons. Members of this family are ~93% identical to the BS3_DM consensus sequence. Therefore, this family was active a few million years ago. The 539-aa C-terminal portion of reverse transcriptase, BS3_DM-orf2p, is encoded by the BS3_DM consensus sequence (positions 2-1618).
