Domain

Reverse transcriptase, RNA-dependent DNA polymerase (IPR013103)

Short name: RVT_2

Domain relationships

None.

Description

A reverse transcriptase gene is usually indicative of a mobile element such as a retrotransposon or retrovirus. Reverse transcriptases occur in a variety of mobile elements, including retrotransposons, retroviruses, group II introns, bacterial msDNAs, hepadnaviruses, and caulimoviruses. This entry includes reverse transcriptases not recognised by IPR000477 [PMID: 1698615].
