Analysis of the functions and products of the yeast retrotransposon Ty

Abstract:

There are 30-35 copies of the retrotransposon Ty in the haploid genome of most laboratory strains of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Ty elements are 5.9 kb long, have LTRs of 340 bp and produce a genomic RNA that is 5.7 kb in length, through which it transposes. They contain two ORFs; the TYA gene of the class I element Tyl-15 is 1,319 nucleotides long whilst its TYB gene, which possesses the consensus sequences of retroviral acid proteases, reverse transcriptases and...
