The realization of cross talks between transposable elements of class I and their host genome involves non-histonic chromatin proteins. These interactions have been widely analyzed through the characterization of the gypsy retrotransposon leader region, which holds a particularly strong insulator element, and the proteins required for its function, Su(Hw),(More)
We have determined the structure and organization of Tirant, a retrotransposon of Drosophila melanogaster reported in literature to be responsible for four independent mutations. Tirant is a long terminal repeat (LTR) retrotransposon 8527bp long. It possesses three open reading frames (ORF) encoding Gag, Pol and Env proteins with a strong similarity with(More)
AIMS To study the transcriptional analysis of glutamate dehydrogenase gene, involved in the amino acid conversion to aroma compound in Streptococcus thermophilus. METHODS AND RESULTS Analysis of the gdhA gene nucleotide sequence of S. thermophilus CNRZ1066 revealed that the coding region is 1353 nucleotides long. The deduced amino acids sequence exhibits(More)
