From: Endonuclease-containing Penelope retrotransposons in the bdelloid rotifer Adineta vaga exhibit unusual structural features and play a role in expansion of host gene families

Figure 4

Penelope -mediated mobilization of an intron-containing NRPS gene. Shown are the two scaffolds which constitute an allelic pair containing glucose-6-phosphate isomerase (G6PI) and RXR-like retinoic acid receptor (RXR) coding sequences. Scaffold 385 harbors a NRPS insertion flanked by Pen3a pLTRs (see FigureĀ 2i) and by an 8-bp target site duplication (GAATTAAT), which is present only once on scaffold 561. Introns are denoted by V-shaped lines; other features are as in FigureĀ 2. Scale bar, 1 kb.
