V12 is a Ty1/Copia-like LTR retrotransposon described in the genome of Vitis vinifera (Kalendar et al. 2007, unpublished). This element belongs to Tork clade within the Branch 2 of Ty1/Copia family (Llorens et al. 2009). V12 genome is about 5.4 Kb in size (5433 bp long,) and includes identical 676 nts LTRs flanking a single Open Reading Frame (ORF) of 1337 amino acids. The ORF displays the Ty1/Copia-like gag-pol domains organization (gag, protease, integrase, reverse transcriptase and ribonuclease H).



Figure not to scale. If present, long terminal repeats (LTRs) have been highlighted in blue. Amino acid motifs noted with lines indicate the conserved residues in each protein domain, abbreviations below mean:

MA=matrix PR=protease DU or DUT=dUTPase TM=transmembrane TAV or IBMP=transactivator/viroplasmin or inclusion body matrix protein
CA=capsid RT=reverse transcriptase INT=Integrase CHR=chromodomain
NC=nucleocapsid RH=RNaseH SU=surface MOV=movement protein
PPT=polypurine tract PBS=primer binding site ATF=aphid transmission factor VAP=virion associated protein
