Vitico1-1 (Vitis Copia element type 1-1) is an Oryco-like Ty1/Copia LTR retrotransposon found in the genome of Vitis vinifera (Llorens et al. 2009). The genome of Vitico1-1 is 4646 bp in size, including LTRs of 302 (5’LTR) and 301 nts long (3’LTR). The internal region of this element presents a single ORF displaying the distinct gag and pol domains in the ORF order typical of Ty1/Copia LTR retrotransposons (Llorens et al. 2009).



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
