Abstract:
The genome harbors several hundred copies of NonLTR-1_CR1. They are over 85% identical to the consensus sequence. NonLTR-1_CR elements are characterized by a high rate of the premature termination of their reverse transcription. Above 14% of all NonLTR-1_CR elements are shorter than 35 bp. Only a few elements are as long as the consensus sequence. Most likely, the consensus sequence represents the 3' noncoding terminus of an autonomous NonLTR-1_CR elements. Because of the frequent 5' truncations, a coding portion is unknown. NonLTR-1_CR elements are characterized by 5-15 bp target site duplications.
