Long interspersed elements (LINEs) are transposable elements that proliferate within eukaryotic genomes, having a large impact on eukaryotic genome evolution. LINEs mobilize via a process called retrotransposition. Although the role of the LINE-encoded protein(s) in retrotransposition has been extensively investigated, the participation of host-encoded(More)
In higher animal cells, the principal limitation of gene-targeting technology is the extremely low efficiency of targeted integration, which occurs three to four orders of magnitude less frequently than random integration. Assuming that random integration mechanistically involves non-homologous end-joining (NHEJ), inactivation of this pathway should reduce(More)
Peroxynitrite is responsible for nitration in vivo, whereas myeloperoxidase can also catalyze protein nitration in the presence of high NO2(-) levels. Recent reports of myeloperoxidase-mediated enzyme inactivation or lipid peroxidation have suggested a role of myeloperoxidase in various pathological conditions. To clarify the role of myeloperoxidase in(More)
