Abstract:
INVADER6 is a family of Gypsy-like endogenous retroviruses and it belongs to the INVADER group. INVADER6 is less than 70% identical to other Gypsy-like elements present in the sequenced portion of the D. melanogaster genome. INVADER6_I is an internal portion of the INVADER6 endogenous retrovirus. Its long terminal repeat is listed in Repbase as INVADER6_LTR. INVADER6_I is flanked by 6% divergent LTRs. Therefore, INVADER6 is expected to be younger than 1 Myr. The internal sequence in incomplete. Presumably, an active INVADER6_I encoded a long polyprotein composed of gag, protease, integrase and reverse transcriptase domains. The corresponding ORF present in the genomic copy of INVADER6_I is slightly damaged by deletions and stop codons.
