Request for info about yeast transposon LTRs

I'm trying to find out the substructure of the long terminal
repeats (LTRs) in yeast transposons.

LTRs should comprise of a U3, R, and U5 region.  In yeast,
Ty1 and Ty2 transposon LTRs are about 330 bp long.  Does 
anyone know the exact coordinates of U3, R, and U5 within
an LTR?

If anyone could help, or point me in the right direction 
of somewhere to look, I would be very grateful.
