Title:

Abstract:
This is a non-LTR retrotransposon from the I clade. I-1_AF elements are flanked by ~14-bp target site duplications. Several copies are inserted randomly. Several copies are inserted precisely at the same target site in Afut2-LTR. I-1_AF encodes the 497-aa I-1_AF1p DNA/RNA-binding protein (pos. 171-1660) and 1273-aa I-1_AF2p polyprotein (pos. 1661-5479) composed of the endonuclease (aa pos. 12-244), reverse transcriptase (aa pos. 490-750), and RNAse H (aa pos. 971-1115).
