Pea Ty1-copia group retrotransposons: transpositional activity and use as markers to study genetic diversity in Pisum

Abstract

The variation in transposition history of different Ty1-copia group LTR retrotransposons in the species lineages of the Pisum genus has been investigated. A heterogeneous population of Ty1-copia elements was isolated by degenerate PCR and two of these (Tps12 and Tps19) were selected on the basis of their copy number and sequence conservation between closely… (More)
