DIRS1a_DR (DF0003727)

Non-autonomous DIRS-like LTR retrotransposon


DIRS1a_DR is a subfamily of DIRS1_DR retrotransposons. There are ~100 copies of DIRS1a_DR in the genome, they are ~0.7% divergent from the consensus sequence. Therefore, this family retrotransposed in the zebrafish genome very recently. There is a 11% divergence between the DIRS1a_DR and DIRS1_DR consensus sequences. Presumably, DIRS1a_DR is a nonautonomous family because ORF1-ORF3, that are intact in DIRS1_DR, are corrupted by stop codons. The DIRS1a_DR was reconstructed based on multiple alignment of 7 copies.
