DIVER_I (DF0001567)

DIVER_I is an internal portion of DIVER retrovirus-like element


LTR of DIVER retrotransposon is DIVER_LTR. DIVER may be an active retrovirus since some of its copies are identical. Target site duplication is 5 bp-long. DIVER_I internal sequence encodes 1747 aa-long polyprotein (nucleotide position 332-5572) similar to the ones encoded by BEL and ROO retroviruses. These retroviruses form separate BCDPR superfamily (an abbreviation of Bel-Catch-Diver-Pao-Roo retroviruses). Members of this superfamily are present in vertebrates (fish retrovirus CATCH). DIVER's polyprotein contains gag-like zinc-finger domain (aa position 320-410); reverse transcriptase domain (aa position 810-910) and endonuclease/integrase domain (1350-1620). All these domain are significantly similar to the domains encoded by different mammalian retroviruses.
