Transposable elements are the main components of grass genomes, especially in Triticeae species. In a previous analysis, we identified a very short element, Morgane_CR626934-1; here we describe more precisely this unusual element. Morgane_CR626934-1 shows high sequence identity (until 98%) with ESTs belonging to other possible small elements, expressed under abiotic and biotic stress conditions. No putative functional polyprotein could be identified in all of these different Morgane-like… CONTINUE READING
