We isolated and characterized different classes of transposable DNA elements in oil palm (Elaeis guineensis) plants grown from seed, and plants regenerated from tissue culture that show mantling, an abnormality leading to flower abortion. Using PCR assays, reverse transcriptase fragments belonging to LINE-like and gypsy-like retroelements and transposase fragments of En/Spm transposons were cloned. Sequence analysis revealed the presence of a major family of LINEs in oil palm, with other… CONTINUE READING
