Abstract:
This consensus is generated from 3 sequences with >97% identity. Both termini are truncated. This family and related Kiri elements found from two mosquito species, Culex quinquefasciatus and Aedes aegypti, constitute a distinct lineage belonging to the CR1 group. The phylogenetic analysis with PhyML indicates that Kiri is a sister lineage of the L2 clade. Although several Kiri elements do not encode two proteins, probably due to 5' truncation, Kiri elements generally encode two proteins. Their ORF1 proteins commonly contain an L1-like RNA-binding domain.
