ROO_I (DF0001695)

ROO_I is an internal portion of endogenous retrovirus ROO


ROO belongs to the BCDPR superfamily of retroviruses. Gag, RT, endonuclease and env are encoded by one long ORF (position 855-7934; 2360 aa-long polyprotein). ROO generates 5 bp-long duplication of targets sites. It's an active mobile element.
