  • Although Helitrons and Helitron -related sequences have been identified in the genome of plants, fungi, invertebrates, and fish ( 11 - 14 ), these elements have not been described previously in a mammalian species. (pnas.org)
  • Since 1971, the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) operating on behalf of the world community of virologists has taken on the task of developing a single, universal taxonomic scheme for all viruses infecting animals (vertebrate, invertebrates, and protozoa), plants (higher plants and algae), fungi, bacteria, and archaea.

  • As it turns out, bacteria are often infected with viruses called bacteriophages, and play "host" to them just as the bodies of human beings, plants, and other animals host infections of both bacteria and viruses. (citizendium.org)
  • Rolling-circle (RC) transposons, or Helitrons , are a newly recognized group of eukaryotic transposable elements abundant in the genomes of plants, invertebrates, and zebrafish. (pnas.org)
