LINE-1 retrotransposition events regulate gene expression after X-ray irradiation.

Abstract

Long interspersed nuclear element-1 (LINE-1) retrotransposons are mobile elements that insert into new genomic locations via reverse transcription of an RNA intermediate. The mechanism of retrotransposition is not entirely understood. The integration of these elements occurs by target-primed reverse transcription (TPRT), which initiates double-strand breaks… (More)
