Abstract:
This is a consensus sequence of a family of autonomous Helitron transposons transposed in the Drosophila virilis genome a few million years ago (copies are less than 5% divergent from the consensus sequence). The Helitron-1_DVir consensus sequence encodes the 2118 Hel-1_DVirp protein composed of the REP, HEL, and apurinic endonuclease domains. Helitron-1_DVir elements and non-autonmous elements transposed by the Helitron-1_DVir enzymatic machinery (e.g. Helitron-1N1_DVir) are usually inserted in the TTT|TTT target sites without the target site duplications (the insertion site is marked by "|"). Different families of Helitrons constitute ~5% of the D. virilis genome.
