Scheme of plasmid constructs possessing LTRs with PQS. a Scheme of pBC in which LTRs (green) were cloned into SmaI restriction site. b Overview of cloned LTRs. Length is shown on the bottom scale. G4 position and orientation is indicated by red (plus strand) and blue (minus strand) rectangles. Predicted transcriptional start sites (TSS) are also shown, both with TATA box (orange) and TATA-less TSS (purple triangles)
