Abstract:
SINEX-1_AG is a family of nonautonomous non-LTR retrotransposons. The SINEX-1_AG consensus sequence was reconstructed based on multiple alignment of ~2000 copies, which are over 90% identical to the consensus. SINEX-1_AG copies are usually flanked by ~10-bp target site duplications. The genome harbors over 10,000 copies of SINEX-1_AG, including those that are 30% divergent from the the consensus sequence. This family is quite unusual because there is no similarity of SINEX-1_AG to any known tRNAs or other RNA with internal pol III promoters. It is possible that SINEX-1_AG encodes a new type of the internal pol III promoter.
