Patterns of Repeat-Induced Point Mutation in Transposable Elements of Basidiomycete Fungi

Abstract

Transposable elements (TEs) are ubiquitous genomic parasites that have prompted the evolution of genome defense systems that restrict their activity. Repeat-induced point mutation (RIP) is a homology-dependent genome defense that introduces C-to-T transition mutations in duplicated DNA sequences and is thought to control the proliferation of selfish… (More)
