Sometime long in the past, Zapotec farmers must have selected kernels for reseeding that contained an inhibitor of the mutator transposon, whose effect is thus countered as long as the maize is exclusively inbred, If crossed with other races, however, the mutator transposon can escape to other breeds and act like a genetic time bomb.
Historically, the major drawback of automatic garbage collection was that it significantly detracted from the performance of the mutator, both by introducing unpredictably long pauses in computation and by using large proportions of available processing cycles.

Furthermore, alterations in the cellular epigenome, which may be termed epigenotoxicity, elicited by various genotoxic and nongenotoxic agents may result in the emergence of epigenerically reprogrammed proliferating cells with a growth-advantage phenotype and a high potential for activation of mutator pathways (Pogribny et al.
