CATCH1I_DR (DF0002688)

Internal sequence of an endogenous retrovirus from zebrafish


CATCH1I_DR is an internal portion of the CATCH1_DR endogenous retrovirus, which belongs to the BEL/Pao superfamily. It is flanked by identical long terminal repeats, deposited in Repbase as CATCH1LTR_DR, and is characterized by 5-bp target site duplication. It is possible that CATCH1_DR is still active in zebrafish. CATCH1I_DR encodes one polyprotein, 2029-aa CATCH1_DRp (positions 190-419). CATCH1_DRp includes gag-like, reverse transcriptase and endonuclease domains similar to other retroviruses from the BEL/Pao superfamily. N-terminal region of CATCH1_DRp (positions 20-250) is similar to coiled coil domains present in various myosins. Gag-like domain (including zinc fingers) is located at ~420-770.
