L1-8_DR (DF0003654)

L1-like non-LTR retrotransposon from zebrafish


L1-8_DR is a family of L1-like non-LTR retrotransposon. There are ~100 copies of L1-8_DR in the zebrafish genome. They are ~2% divergent from the consensus sequence. The consensus sequence is incomplete (a ~300-bp 5' end is not present). The consensus sequence encodes two proteins: a 290-aa L1-8_DR1p (positions 1-820) and a 1271-aa L1-8_DR2p (positions 1248-5060). These proteins are most close to corresponding proteins encoded by other L1-like elements. L1-8_DR1p is a putative RNA/DNA binding protein, and L1-8_DR2p is composed of the AP endonuclease and reverse transcriptase domains.
