Schematic structures of jatropha copia -type retrotransposons. Structures of consensus sequences are shown with their LTRs (filled boxes) and the GAG-POL regions (open boxes). Regions of cloned RT sequences are shown by red boxes, and those used for the phylogenetic tree construction (see Figure 4) are shown by blue boxes. Lineages (I, II, and III) of the families are also indicated. EcoRI and BamHI restriction sites of Jc3 and Jc5 sequences are shown below the structures. In family Jc8 the POL region has exceeded into the right LTR. Numbers are correspondence of the consensus sequences.
