Retrotransposons represent a group of transposable elements that integrate into new genomic locations via an RNA intermediate.
Y dentro de este analisis el concepto de habitus de Bourdieu cobra relevancia en tanto estariamos ante "durable and transposable systems of schemata of perception, appreciation, and action that result from the institution of the social in the body" (Bourdieu An Invitation 127).
Methylation of cytosine in DNA is an epigenetic mark that is important for genome stability, transcriptional regulation of endogenous genes, and permanent silencing of transposable elements and viral sequences.
To make this transformation clear, I briefly digress to the narrative that surrounds Barbara McClintock, a Nobel Prize winner who, in the 1940s, developed a theory for genetic transformations based on what she called transposable elements, or transposons, which are short sequences of DNA that are able to shift position within genetic material.
DNA methylation has many functions like silencing of transposable elements, defense against viral sequences and transcriptional repression of certain genes (25).
However the studies of BNT= fimbriae= pili in bacterial adherence was supported by the studies of plasmid genetic engineering and regulatory properties of gene and protein appendages expressions by the studies of transposable elements (Tn) and flanking insertion sequences (IS), [8-10].
The title of this paper was chosen to emphasise on the one hand a possible relation between what is generally referred to as conscious thought and decision-making on the translator's part in his or her practice, and on the other hand the habitus--"systems of durable, transposable dispositions, structured structures predisposed to function as structuring structures" (1990:53), which Bourdieu describes as the conditions associated with a particular class of conditions of existence of an individual or a class.
The habitus composes] systems of durable, transposable dispositions, structured structures predisposed to function as structuring structures .
The exact mechanism of how increased expression of Cyp6g1 occurs in DDT-resistant fruitflies is unknown at this stage, but Daborn and colleagues showed that a transposable element (sometimes known as a 'jumping gene') called Accord is inserted into the Cyp6g1 regulatory sequence (the DNA sequences in front of a gene, controlling its expression).
