Abstract:
Copia2_TP is a young family of copia-like LTR retrotransposons. Copia2-I_TP, an internal portion of Copia2_TP is flanked by 99% identical Copia2-LTR_TP LTRs. Copia2-I_TP is not complete because of a ~500-1000-bp deletion. Copia2_TP is characterized by 6-bp target site duplications (usually copia-like elements induce 5-bp target site duplications). There is no tRNA-like primer binding site in Copia2_TP. Instead, this retrotransposon uses self-priming by the 12-bp CGTTTATAAACG palindrome present at the very 5'-end of its internal portion.
