The reverse transcription of RNA in DNA is responsible for the generation of large families of repetitive sequences called retroposons or non-LTR retrotransposons. Recent reports established that the integration of mammalian SINE and LINE retroposons occurs at nonrandom staggered breaks, probably resulting from the action of a LINE-encoded endonuclease (Feng et al. 1996; Jurka 1997; Jurka et al. 1998). We report here that plant SINE S1 retroposons also integrate at nonrandom staggered breaks… CONTINUE READING
