G5_DM (DF0001604)

G5_DM is a non-LTR retrotransposon


G5_DM belongs to the JOCKEY clade of non-LTR retrotransposons. Its copies have 3' poly(A) tail and they are flanked by ~10-bp direct repeats generated upon integration into genome. The consensus sequence contains two ORFs (positions 411-1976 and 1966-4683) that encode the 522-aa G5p1 and 906-aa G5p2 proteins, correspondingly. G5p1 is a putative DNA/RNA binding protein. G5p2 is composed of the endonuclease, reverse transcriptase and RNase H domains. retrotransposons that were recently (several million years ago) active in the Drosophila melanogaster genome.
