Transposon Ty1-NL2 Gag polyprotein
SUBUNIT: Homotrimer (By similarity).
SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Cytoplasm (By similarity).
ALTERNATIVE PRODUCTS: Event=Ribosomal frameshifting; Named isoforms=2; Comment=The Gag-Pol polyprotein is generated by a +1 ribosomal frameshift. The ratio of Gag:Gag-Pol varies between 20:1 and 5:1 (By similarity); Name=Transposon Ty1-NL2 Gag polyprotein; IsoId=Q12470-1; Sequence=Displayed; Note=Produced by conventional translation; Name=Transposon Ty1-NL2 Gag-Pol polyprotein; IsoId=Q99337-1; Sequence=External; Note=Produced by +1 ribosomal frameshifting between codon Leu-435 and Gly-436 of the YNL054W-A ORF;
INDUCTION: Ty1-NL2 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).
GENE SYNONYMS: YNLWTy1-2 GAG.
