Abstract:
RTEX-4_VC belongs to the RTEX clade of non-LTR retrotransposons. The consensus sequence is ~2% divergent from several copies of RTEX-4_VC. The 3' terminus is composed of the (ACA)n microsatellite. This sequence was derived from sequence data produced by the US Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute http://www.jgi.doe.gov/ in collaboration with the user community.
