Title:
SINE3-1_TC, a family of SINE3 retrotransposons from the red flour beetle genome.

Abstract:
This is a first family of SINE3 retrotransposons identified in insects. SINE3-1_TC contains a pol III internal promoter (pos. 47-93) derived from 5S rRNA (81% identity to the 5S rRNA present in the beetle genome). SINE3-1_TC elements are flanked by 8-10 bp long target site duplications. The 3' terminus is composed of the (ATATTT) microsatellite. Based on presence of TSDs and the 3'-microsatellite, it is expected that SINE3-1_TC elements were retrotransposed by an endonuclease and reverse transcriptase expressed by a I-like non-LTR retrotransposon. This family includes >20 copies that are only ~1% divergent from the consensus sequences.
