Gypsy-17-I_DR (DF0003119)

Internal sequence of a Gypsy LTR retrotransposon from zebrafish


Flanked by Gypsy-17-LTR_DR LTRs. The consensus sequence was reconstructed based on multiple alignment of two proviral copies (they are less than 1% divergent from the consensus sequence). Gypsy-17_DR retrotransposons are characterized by 4-bp target-site duplications. The internal portion contains two ORFs encoding a 572-aa gag protein (pos. 85-1799) and a 1578-aa pol protein (pos. 1794-6527) composed of protease, reverse transcriptase, and integrase domains. The second protein, including the protease domain, does not start from Met. Presumably, the gag-pol fusion protein is formed originally due to a ribosomal frame shift. This family is likely still active in the genome. One proviral copy is flanked by identical LTRs.
