L2-3_DRe (DF0003720)

Non-LTR retrotransposon from zebrafish


Re-classified to L2 and renamed. L2-3_DR is a family of L2-like non-LTR retrotransposons and it was active in zebrafish recently. The consensus sequence encodes a 516-aa gag (position 254-1801) and 971-aa pol (positions 1805-4717) protein. The latter is composed of AP endonuclease (aa positions 72-282) and reverse transcriptase (aa positions 543-788). The first is distantly related to proteins encoded by ORF1 in known L2-like elements from chicken, pufferfish and turtle. L2-3_DR copies are less than ~5% divergent from the consensus sequence. There are almost 6,000 matches to L2-3_DR in the zebrafish genome.
