    ..Our results reveal the complexity of the evolutionary dynamics of the ancient element Copia25 in angiosperm, involving several processes including sequence conservation, rapid turnover, stochastic losses and horizontal transfer. ..

  3. Lopes F, Silva J, Benchimol M, Costa G, Pereira G, Carareto C. The protist Trichomonas vaginalis harbors multiple lineages of transcriptionally active Mutator-like elements. BMC Genomics. 2009;10:330 pubmed publisher
    ..Finally, the extreme repetitiveness of the T. vaginalis genome and the remarkable degree of sequence identity within its repeat families highlights this species as an ideal system to characterize new transposable elements. ..
  4. Carareto C, Hernandez E, Vieira C. Genomic regions harboring insecticide resistance-associated Cyp genes are enriched by transposable element fragments carrying putative transcription factor binding sites in two sibling Drosophila species. Gene. 2014;537:93-9 pubmed publisher
    ..These fragments carry putative binding sites for transcription factors, which reinforces the hypothesis that DNAREP1 may influence gene regulation and play a role in the adaptation of the Drosophila species. ..

Genome-wide analysis of transposable elements in the coffee berry borer Hypothenemus hampei (Coleoptera: Curculionidae): description of novel families. Mol Genet Genomics. 2017;292:565-583 pubmed publisher
    ..MITEs constitute approximately 50% of the total TEs content, with a high proportion associated with DNA transposons in the Tc1-mariner superfamily. ..
