The complete nucleotide sequence of the tobacco retrotransposon Tto1, one of the few active retrotransposons of plants, was determined. The sequence analysis suggests that Tto1 carries all functions required for autonomous transposition through reverse transcription. Gene organization and the nature of the transcription product suggest that Tto1 uses a gene expression mechanism different from those employed by retroviruses and most retrotransposons to regulate Gag and Pol stoichiometry. Tto1… Expand
Efficient insertion mutagenesis of Arabidopsis by tissue culture-induced activation of the tobacco retrotransposon Tto1.
TLDR
Results indicate that Tto1 can be used as a tool for efficient insertion mutagenesis of Arabidopsis which is especially suitable as a reverse genetics system. Expand
Retrotransposons of rice: their regulation and use for genome analysis
TLDR
The analysis of target sites of transposition indicated that activation of Tos17 is an important cause of tissue culture-induced mutations in rice, and this system will contribute to understanding the functions of rice genes whose sequences are being determined by the rice genome project. Expand

The analysis of target sites of transposition indicated that activation of Tos17 is an important cause of tissue culture-induced mutations in rice, and this system will contribute to understanding the functions of rice genes whose sequences are being determined by the rice genome project. Expand
Linear DNA intermediates of the Tto1 retrotransposon in Gag particles accumulated in stressed tobacco and Arabidopsis thaliana.
TLDR
Results indicate that the transcriptional activation of Tto1 by defence-related stresses leads to the synthesis of DNA intermediates, whereas post-transcriptional suppression of T to1 activity is suggested in the corolla. Expand
Introduction of the tobacco retrotransposon Tto1 into diploid potato
TLDR
The results indicated that the potato is a recalcitrant plant with respect to Tto1 transposition and that the behavior of T to1 can differ depending on the host plant. Expand
Retrotransposons of rice involved in mutations induced by tissue culture.
TLDR
Results indicate that activation of Tos17 is an important cause of tissue culture-induced mutations, and may be a useful tool for insertional mutagenesis and functional analysis of genes. Expand
Transcriptional activation of the tobacco retrotransposon Tto1 by wounding and methyl jasmonate
TLDR
It is shown here that expression of Tto1 can be induced in leaves of tobacco by wounding stress, and exogenous supply of methyl jasmonate, which is known to be a potent inducer of certain wound-responsive genes in plants, also induces T to1 RNA expression. Expand
A synthetic biology approach allows inducible retrotransposition in whole plants
TLDR
A synthetic biology program is established on tobacco retrotransposon Tto1, and transposition in whole plants triggered by an inducible promoter is achieved, and the engineered element, iTto (inducible T to1), is a novel tool for analysis of retrotransposition in plants. Expand
Silencing of Retrotransposons in Arabidopsis and Reactivation by the ddm1 Mutation
TLDR
The results suggest that the inactivation of retrotransposons and the silencing of repeated genes have mechanisms in common, and are similar to repeat-induced gene silencing. Expand
Plant retrotransposons.
TLDR
This review describes the structure, genomic organization, expression, regulation, and evolution of retrotransposons, and discusses both their contributions to plant genome evolution and their use as genetic tools in plant biology. Expand

Extrachromosomal circular forms of the tobacco retrotransposon Tto1.

Analysis of extrachromosomal forms of the tobacco RTn Tto1 found that the junction between the LTR contains small deletions and/or insertions, suggesting that the insertions are produced by a mechanism other than excision. Expand

Retrotransposons in the flanking regions of normal plant genes: a role for copia-like elements in the evolution of gene structure and expression.
TLDR
Computer-assisted database searches using Hopscotch and other plant copia-like retroelements as query sequences have revealed that ancient, degenerate retrotransposon insertions are found in close proximity to 21 previously sequenced plant genes, suggesting thatCopia- like retrotransposition elements are an ancient component of plant genomes.

Novel gene expression mechanism in a fission yeast retroelement: Tf1 proteins are derived from a single primary translation product.
TLDR
Evidence suggests that Tf1 proteins form VLPs without using the previously described mechanisms that retroviruses and retrotransposons require to overexpress Gag proteins. Expand
Multiple molecular determinants for retrotransposition in a primer tRNA
TLDR
A genetic assay in which mutants of tRNA(iMet), the primer for the Ty1 retrotransposon of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, can be tested for the ability to serve as primers in the reverse transcription process is developed and demonstrates that complementarity to the element primer binding site is a necessary but not sufficient requirement for effective tRNA priming.

TLDR
Nucleotide sequence analysis showed that the Ta1, Ta2 and Ta3 families share greater than 75% amino acid identity in pairwise comparisons of their reverse transcriptase and RNase H genes, and phylogenetic analysis of the amino acid sequences suggests that horizontal transfer may have played a role in their evolution.
