Abstract:
Gypsy-23-I_DR is an internal portion of the Gypsy-23_DR LTR retrotransposon that belongs to the Gypsy superfamily. Its long terminal repeat is deposited in Repbase as Gypsy-23-LTR_DR. Gypsy-23_DR is characterized by 4-bp target site duplications. The internal portion encodes one polyprotein composed of the gag, protease, reverse transcriptase, and integrase domains. Likely, based on structure of related elements, including Gypsy7_DR and Gypsy-22_DR, the polyprotein was encoded in active elements by one ORF. It contains a few stop-codons in the consensus sequence that was built from four copies less than 4% divergent from each other.
