Novel gene expression mechanism in a fission yeast retroelement: Tf1 proteins are derived from a single primary translation product.

Abstract

In sharp contrast to the single ORF of the Schizosaccharomyces pombe retrotransposon Tf1, retroviruses and most retrotransposons employ two different ORFs to separately encode the Gag and Pol proteins. The different ORFs are thought to allow for overexpression of the Gag protein relative to Pol protein presumed necessary for the assembly of functional… (More)
