Virus-like attachment sites and plastic CpG islands:landmarks of diversity in plant Del retrotransposons

PloS One

May 23, 2014

Guilherme M Q CruzMarie-Anne Van Sluys

Abstract

Full-length Del elements from ten angiosperm genomes, 5 monocot and 5 dicot, were retrieved and putative attachment (att) sites were identified. In the 2432 Del elements, two types of U5 att sites and a single conserved type of U3 att site were identified. Retroviral att sites confer sp...read more

Transposable Elements

Transposable elements (tes) have profound effects on the structure, function and evolution of their host genomes.

Evolution of Gene Regulation (Keystone)

The evolution from single-celled to multicellular organisms required precise control of genes and gave cells the ability to be programmed for specific functions. Discover the latest research on the evolution of gene regulation and gene regulation in Drosophila in this feed.

CpG Sites

CpG sites are genomic loci where cytosine is followed by a guanine along its 5’ to 3’ direction. CpG sites are common in CpG islands and its methylation has been implicated in cancer, aging, and gene silencing. Here is the latest research.

Structure and Function of DNA

The double helix structure of DNA is important for its biological function. Discover the latest research on the Structure and Function of DNA here.

Whole Genome and Gene Duplications in Evolution

Gene and whole-genome duplications have occurred repeatedly and broadly throughout the evolutionary history of eukaryotes. Discover the latest research on Whole Genome and Gene Duplications in Evolution here.

Transposons for Gene Editing

Transposons can replicate and spread through the host’s genome and therefore be used as a genetic tool for analysis of gene function. Discover the latest research on the use of transposons for gene editing here.

HIV-1 Reverse Transcriptase

HIV-1 reverse transcriptase is among the earliest HIV proteins identified and is involved in viral replication. More than half of investigational long-acting antivirals target hiv-1 reverse transcriptase and/or integrase (hiv-1 in). Discover the latest research here.

Oncoviral Profiles

Viral infections have been found to be responsible for causing some cancer types in humans. The collection of the viral genome gathered from cancer genome sequencing data can help identify the origin of the cancer. Here is the latest research on oncoviral profiles.

Evolution of Gene Regulation

The evolution from single-celled to multicellular organisms required precise control of genes and gave cells the ability to be programmed for specific functions. Discover the latest research on Evolution of Gene Regulation here.

The HIV Genome

The HIV genome is composed of two identical single-stranded RNA molecules. It contains nine genes encoding fifteen structural and regulatory viral proteins. Find the latest research on the HIV genome here.

Genetic Speciation

Speciation depends on the genetic evolution of reproductive barriers that allow populations to diverge from each other. Discover the latest research on Genetic Speciation here.
