Abstract:
G6_DM belongs to the JOCKEY clad of non-LTR retrotransposons. G6_DM forms a separate family of retrotransposons that were recently (~0.6 Myr ago) active in the D. melanogaster genome. There are 7 copies of G6_DM in the sequenced genome, they are ~1% divergent from the consensus sequence. G_DM is the element most similar to G6_DM (72% identity). It's very likely that G6_DM elements have been multiplied as nonautonomous elements. ORF2, which encodes pol (G_DM, positions 1671-4035), is almost completely deleted in the consensus sequence (positions 1743-1744). G6_DM encodes G6p1, a 430-aa gag-like protein (positions 322-1611).
