LTR retrotransposons are major components of plant genomes. They are regulated by a diverse array of external stresses and tissue culture conditions, displaying finely tuned responses to these stimuli, mostly in the form of upregulation. Second to stress conditions and tissue culture, meristems are also permissive for LTR retrotransposon expression, suggesting that a dedifferentiated cell status may represent a frequent activating condition. LTR regions are highly plastic and contain regulatory… CONTINUE READING
