A maize cDNA clone was isolated by virtue of its intense hybridization to total maize genomic DNA, indicating homology to highly repetitive sequences. Genomic homologues were identified and subcloned from an adh1-bearing maize yeast artificial chromosome (YAC). Sequencing revealed that the expressed sequence was part of a Ty3-gypsy-type retrotransposon. We discovered and sequenced two complete retrotransposons of this family, and named them Cinful elements because they are members of a family… CONTINUE READING
