Characterization of transcripts from the Dictyostelium discoideum retrotransposable genetic element DRE.

Abstract

All of the approximately 150 copies of the Dictyostelium discoideum retrotransposable element DRE are integrated 50 +/- 4 nucleotides upstream from different transfer RNA genes. These genomic regions are generally devoid of informative DNA why integration of the retrotransposon at these position never causes phenotypic mutations. This property makes DRE… (More)
