Abstract:
Troyka is a distinctive group of gypsy LTR retrotransposons. Troyka retrotransposons differ from canonical gypsy and other LTR retrotransposons by the length of target site duplications (3-bp in Troyka) and by the unusual 5'-CG and CG-3' termini of LTRs. The ~1600-aa polyprotein encoded by Troyka elements is composed of the aspartyl protease, reverse transcriptase, and integrase domains. The polyproteins encoded by different families of Troyka present in the cnidarian and amphioxus genomes are ~50% identical to each other. However, there proteins are only 20-30% identical to the pro, RT and INT domains encoded by canonical gypsy LTR retrotransposons. Troyka-1_BF is a very young family of Troyka LTR retrotransposons present in the amphioxus genome. Some copies of Troyka-1_BF are flanked by 100% identical LTRs.
