Transposon Ty1-A Gag polyprotein
SUBUNIT: Homotrimer (By similarity).
SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Cytoplasm (By similarity).
INDUCTION: Ty1-A is a weakly expressed element. Induced under amino acid starvation conditions by GCN4.
DOMAIN: The C-terminal RNA-binding region of CA is sufficient for all its nucleocapsid-like chaperone activities (By similarity). MISCELLANEOUS: Retrotransposons are mobile genetic entities that are able to replicate via an RNA intermediate and a reverse transcription step. In contrast to retroviruses, retrotransposons are non-infectious, lack an envelope and remain intracellular. Ty1 retrotransposons belong to the copia elements (pseudoviridae). CAUTION: Transposon Ty1-A (YARCTy1-1) contains a frameshift at position 610, which disrupts the ORF coding for protein TY1B.
GENE SYNONYMS: YARCTy1-1 GAG.
