Role of RNA polymerase III transcription factors in the selection of integration sites by the dictyostelium non-long terminal repeat retrotransposon TRE5-A.

Abstract

In the compact Dictyostelium discoideum genome, non-long terminal repeat (non-LTR) retrotransposons known as TREs avoid accidental integration-mediated gene disruption by targeting the vicinity of tRNA genes. In this study we provide the first evidence that proteins of a non-LTR retrotransposon interact with a target-specific transcription factor to direct… (More)
