LINEs and gypsy-like retrotransposons in Hordeum species

LINE and gypsy-like retroelements were studied in the genome of Hordeum vulgare, and compared with the representatives of the major sections of the genus Hordeum. We isolated reverse transcriptase (RT) genes from four gypsy-like and three LINE families using PCR primers specific for the corresponding conserved domains. A full-length barley LINE of 6295 bp… CONTINUE READING
