ROOA_I (DF0001693)

ROOA_I is an internal portion of the ROOA endogenous retrovirus


ROOA is a family of ancient endogenous retroviruses that were active in the D. melanogaster genome ~2.5 Myr ago. ROOA belongs to the BCDPR superfamily of retroviruses. The gag and env regions are not complete because of a lack of sequence data. The reverse transcriptase and endonuclease domains are encoded by the ~4000-bp ORF. It encodes 1351-aa polyprotein (ROOApol, positions 1298-5350).
