ETnII elements are mobile members of the repetitive early transposon family of mouse long terminal repeat (LTR) retroelements and have caused a number of mutations by inserting into genes. ETnII sequences lack retroviral genes, but the recent discovery of related MusD retroviral elements with regions similar to gag, pro, and pol suggests that MusD provides(More)
We have sequenced and characterized an endogenous type D retrovirus, which we have named TvERV(D), from the genome of an Australian marsupial, the common brushtail possum (Trichosurus vulpecula). Intact TvERV(D) gag, pro, pol, and env open reading frames were detected in the possum genome. TvERV(D) was classified as a type D retrovirus, most closely related(More)
ETn (early transposon) elements are moderate repetitive sequences present in hundreds of copies in the mouse genome. Their length ranges from 4.4 to 7.1 kb, and, like transposons, they contain long terminal repeats (LTRs) on both sides and are flanked by target site duplications (Kaghad et al. 1985). ETn-related elements can be grouped into three distinct(More)
HTz is a member of the archaeal histone family. The archaeal histones have primary sequences and structural similarity to the eukaryal histone fold domain, and are thought to resemble the archetypal ancestor of the eukaryal nucleosome core histones. The effects of growth phase on the total soluble proteins from Thermococcus zilligii, isolated after various(More)
