Characterization of Stowaway MITEs in pea (Pisum sativum L.) and identification of their potential master elements.


We have investigated miniature inverted-repeat transposable elements (MITEs) of the Stowaway family and corresponding Mariner-like master elements that could potentially facilitate their mobilization in the genome of the garden pea (Pisum sativum L.). The population of pea Stowaway MITEs consists of 103-104 copies dispersed in the genome. Judging from a… (More)
