FW2_DM (DF0001598)

FW2_DM is a non-LTR retrotransposon


FW2_DM belongs to the JOCKEY clade of non-LTR retrotransposons. Members of this family are ~95% identical to the FW2_DM consensus sequence. Therefore, this family was active a few million years ago. The FW2_DM consensus sequence includes two open reading frames that encode the 417-aa FW2_DM-ORF1p (positions 2-1249) and 859-aa FW_DM-ORF2p (positions 1256-3832). These proteins are similar to the Jockey-like DNA/RNA-binding and endonuclease/reverse transcriptase proteins, respectively. ~500-bp 5' terminal portion of FW2_DM is not reconstructed yet. There are 10 copies of FW2_DM present in the sequenced portion of the D. melanogaster genome.
