A novel approach for discovering retrotransposons: characterization of a long terminal repeat element in the spoilage yeast Pichia membranaefaciens and its use in strain identification.

Abstract

A novel PCR-based approach designed to detect retrotransposon long terminal repeat (LTR) elements via their association with tRNA genes was applied to Pichia membranaefaciens, an industrially important food spoilage yeast. A single primer based on tRNA gene sequences was used to amplify DNA fragments from different strains, and an observed fragment size… (More)
