Retrotransposons are a principal component of most eukaryotic genomes, representing roughly 40% of the human genome and 50–80% of some grass genomes. They are usually transcriptionally silent but can be activated under certain stresses. Despite their considerable contribution to genome structure, their impact on the expression of adjacent genes is not well understood. The steady-state transcript levels originating from Wis 2-1A retrotransposons are much higher in newly synthesized wheat… Expand
