By examining the DNA of hundreds more typica moths and ruling out mutations one by one, the team ended up with one candidate: the large transposable element
, which had landed in the cortex gene.
The transposable element
pTn5Spcat was used to mutate Psm mutants.
KRAB zinc finger proteins are a rare class of proteins that is rapidly expanding and evolving in mammalian genomes, which makes sense because the transposable elements
are themselves continually evolving to escape repression.
: A DNA segment that can change its position within the genome; retrotransposons are a type of transposable element
Engineering variegated floral patterns in tobacco plants using Arabidopsis transposable element
Scientifically, they are better known as transposons or transposable elements
because of their ability to 'jump' from one position of the genome to another, sometimes having a dramatic effect on the host organism.
INDICA) MINIATURE INVERTED-REPEAT TRANSPOSABLE ELEMENTS (MITES).
biology has been exploited for this purpose for the last quarter century, and modern genetic constructions function simply enough to be useful for advanced undergraduate laboratory exercises.
One of the most common transposable element
, Alu, tends to cluster where there are genes.
An alternative approach to generate mutations in Drosophila involves the use of a transposable element
japonicus have not been as well studied, but the maize transposable element
Ac is mobile in the progeny of transgenie plants, permitting transposon-tagging programs (Thykjaer et al.
