IVK_DM (DF0001660)

IVK_DM is a non-LTR retrotransposon


IVK_DM belongs to the JOCKEY clade of non-LTR retrotransposons. It generates ~10-bp target site duplications upon its integration into the genome. IVK_DM encodes gag-like (ORF1: 192-1511) and reverse transcriptase (ORF2: 1607-5344) polyproteins.
