Abstract:
EnSpm-3_VV (Cactavine-3 in [1]) is an autonomous element. Its individual copies are >80% identical to the consensus sequence. It is questionable whether individual copies contain an intact ORF due to premature stop codons and/or frameshifts. EnSpm-3 contains short TIRs which are flanked by 3 bp-long TSDs. Downstream of the TPase gene (region 8938-12854) is another ORF encoding for a ULP1-like protein similar to CAN73872.1 (aa 839-1482). Although ULP1 (or Peptidase C48) -like proteins are usually found in Mutator elements, our study shows that such proteins are common in CACTA elements as well. This feature is not restricted only to Vitis as similar examples were found in rice [1].
