Mechanism of Ds1 excision from the genome of maize streak virus


We have previously shown that the maize transposable element Ds1 introduced into maize plants by agroinfection can be excised from the genome of geminivirus maize streak virus (MSV). Excision depended strictly on the presence of an active Ac element in the plants. In this study, the excision products or “footprints” left in the MSV genome after Ds1 excision… (More)
