APOBEC3A and APOBEC3B are potent inhibitors of LTR-retrotransposon function in human cells
While the ability of APOBEC3G to reduce the replication of a range of exogenous retroviruses is now well established, recent evidence has suggested that APOBEC3G can also inhibit the replication ofExpand

The intracisternal A-particle gene family: structure and functional aspects.
Publisher Summary This chapter reviews the various aspects of research on intracisternal type A particles (IAPs)—expression in early development, genomic sequences as chromosomal genes andExpand

An edited linkage map for the AXB and BXA recombinant inbred mouse strains
Abstract. We have updated the history of the AXB and BXA recombinant inbred (RI) strains, typed additional loci, and edited the AXB, BXA RI database. Thirteen of the original 51 AXB and BXA RIExpand

Intracisternal A-particle genes as movable elements in the mouse genome.
We analyzed two functionally defective mouse kappa light chain gene variants previously shown to contain novel insertions of repetitive DNA in their intervening sequences [Hawley, R. G., Shulman, M.Expand

Genetic and functional analysis of single nucleotide polymorphisms in the beta2-neuronal nicotinic acetylcholine receptor gene (CHRNB2).
The beta2-neuronal nicotinic acetylcholine receptor gene (CHRNB2) is a logical candidate for influencing smoking behavior and nicotine dependence. We discovered six single nucleotide polymorphismsExpand

The long terminal repeat of an endogenous intracisternal A-particle gene functions as a promoter when introduced into eucaryotic cells by transfection.
We describe experiments designed to determine whether an endogenous intracisternal A-particle (IAP) gene randomly selected from a mouse embryo library has the potential to be transcriptionallyExpand

  • 1 June 1980
The genome of Mus musculus contains multiple copies (500 -1000) of DNA sequences related to the 35S RNA of intracisternal type A particles (IAPs). Using labeled IAP RNA as a probe inExpand

Sequences associated with intracisternal a particles are reiterated in the mouse genome
Using a 3H-cDNA for RNA sequences specifically associated with murine intracisternal type A particles, we have found multiple copies of this information in high molecular weight nuclear DNA fromExpand

Intracisternal A-particle genes in Mus musculus: a conserved family of retrovirus-like elements.
The structural organization of intracisternal A-particle genes has been studied, using isolates from a mouse gene library in lambda phage Charon 4A. The predominant gene form among the isolates wasExpand
