Basic structure of the major complete transposable elements found in the genome of M. fijiensis. In 1, the class I representatives are depicted as follows: LTR-Gypsy and LTR-Copia with their respective coding regions as described in the literature. The pol region contains the PR (protease), RT (reverse transcriptase), RH (RNase H) and IN (integrase) domains. In 2, the class II representatives are presented as follows: Tc1-Mariner, Mutator and Harbinger. The LTRs (Long Terminal Repeats) are indicated by wide arrows. The TIRs (Terminal Inverted Repeats) are indicated by small arrows. Each element is flanked by the insertion site or Target Site Repeat (TSR).
