  • insertions
  • Particularly interesting is the finding that all identified lineage-specific SINE elements show a strong tendency to insert within or in very close proximity to the preexisting MIRs for their efficient integrations, suggesting that the MIR element is a hot spot for successive insertions of other SINEs.

  • insertion
  • Zhang, Ya-ping 2005-10-14 00:00:00 An analysis of the nuclear β-fibrinogen intron 7 locus from 30 taxa representing 12 placental orders of mammals reveals the enriched occurrences of short interspersed element (SINE) insertion events. (deepdyve.com)
  • maize
  • The significance of MURA's interaction with the TIRs of Mu elements is discussed in the context of what is known about the regulation and mechanisms of Mutator activities in maize. (asm.org)
  • In this regard, the TgmR* element in soybean resembles McClintock's Spm-suppressible and change-of-state alleles of maize. (nih.gov)
  • A few Stowaway elements also contain cis-acting regulatory domains Based on the presence or absence of MITE family Heartbreaker (Hbr) in maize genome, a molecular marker was developed. (wikipedia.org)
  • Cell Nucleus
  • Grafting of one plant to another can transfer chloroplasts (organelles in plant cells that conduct photosynthesis), mitochondrial DNA, and the entire cell nucleus containing the genome to potentially make a new species. (wikipedia.org)
  • evolutionary
  • The target sites are relatively unspecific so that the chance of an independent integration of exactly the same element into one specific site in different taxa is not large and may even be negligible over evolutionary time scales. (wikipedia.org)
  • structural
  • VFN8 contains a sequence with the structural characteristics of a transposable element. (genetics.org)
  • DNA polymerases (which include RT) share highly conserved structural features, which means that their active catalytic sites vary little from species to species, or even between DNA polymerases using DNA as a template, versus DNA polymerases using RNA as a template. (wikipedia.org)
  • major
  • In 1988, Jerzy Jurka and Temple Smith discovered that Alu elements were split in two major subfamilies known as AluJ (named after Jurka) and AluS (named after Smith), and other Alu subfamilies were also independently discovered by several groups. (wikipedia.org)
