Nickel stimulates L1 retrotransposition by a post-transcriptional mechanism.

Abstract

Sequence studies of the human genome demonstrate that almost half of the DNA is derived from mobile elements. Most of the current retrotransposition activity arises from L1 and the L1-dependent, non-autonomous elements, such as Alu, contributing to a significant amount of genetic mutation and genomic instability. We present data demonstrating that nickel… (More)
