R2 is a non-LTR retrotransposable element that inserts at a specific site in the 28S rRNA genes of most insects. We have expressed the open reading frame of the R2 element from Bombyx mori, R2Bm, in E. coli and shown that it encodes both sequence-specific endonuclease and reverse transcriptase activities. The R2 protein makes a specific nick in one of the(More)
