full-length; related to the BEL / Pao -like LTR retrotransposons

60kb repeats located in the distal heterochromatin of the X chromosome have been cloned. These regions, designated as SCLRs, are comprised of the following types of repeated elements: SteXh, copia-like elements (mdg1 elements, aurora-elements and GATE elements), LINE-elements (G-elements and R1-elements), and bb fragments. There are approximately 9 SCLR copies per haploid genome, with a twofold variation in copy number between different fly stocks.

The GATE element is a copia-like element.
