which create genetic fusions are of two basic types (Fig.
Several observations were made: (i) the length of the small RNAs ranged between 23 and 29 nt, (ii) these RNAs showed strong preference for Uridine at the 5' end, and (iii) most of the sequences could be aligned to annotated transposons
or their remnants.
Furthermore BLASTn searching revealed 2 types of transposons
as putative targets of 5 down regulated ncRNAs suggesting that these repeat sequences would be more activity under Zinc stress.
(38) On the average, about ten different lncRNA are produced for every coding locus, using alternative reading frames overlapping the locus--including transposons
, templating of the noncoding side, and so forth.
Researchers exposed translucent zebrafish to transposons
, "jumping genes" that move around inside the genome of a cell.
VanA glycopeptide resistance: The vanA gene and the other genes involved in the regulation and expression of vancomycin resistance (vanR, vanS, vanH, vanX, and vanZ) are located on a 10,581-bp transposon
(Tn 1546) of E.
They knew the gene resided in the Rp-1 locus on chromosome 10, and among the 200 000-odd maize plants that they had transposon-tagged in the 1980s were several that had lost Rp1-D-type resistance, presumably because the Rp1-D gene had been disrupted by a Ds transposon
. But a host of Ds transposons
now peppered the chromosomes of the mutant plants.
In this case, her team employed the transposon
Activator from corn to seek N in laboratory tobacco plantlets.
Although the conditions in which a transposon
can spread parasitically have been examined theoretically (Charlesworth and Charlesworth 1983; Charlesworth and Langley 1986; Charlesworth 1987), there has been very little experimental investigation of the degree to which these models actually describe transposon
A few P aeruginosa transposon
mutants were requested from Manoil Lab (22).
The upstream sequence of [bla.sub.KPC]-positive strains was analyzed to determine the isoform of the transposon
Tn4401 that harbored [bla.sub.KPC] (7).
Hayes has a proven track record for building teams around new scientific concepts and technologies, including transposon
systems, cancer vaccines, and bispecific monoclonal antibodies.
