Mol Genet Genomics 287:205-19. 2012..Taken together, these findings permit to follow the diversification of some hAT transposase paralogues in sugarcane, aggregating knowledge about the co-evolution of transposons and their host genomes...
- Analysis of plant LTR-retrotransposons at the fine-scale family level reveals individual molecular patternsDouglas S Domingues
GaTE Lab, Depto, de Botânica, Inst, de Biociências, Universidade de Sao Paulo, Rua do Matao, 277, 05508 090 São Paulo, Brazil
BMC Genomics 13:137. 2012..It is therefore crucial to understand their contribution to the genome and transcriptome, however a detailed study of LTR-RTs in sugarcane has not been previously carried out...
- Characterization of new IS elements and studies of their dispersion in two subspecies of Leifsonia xyliMarcelo M Zerillo
Departamento de Botanica, Instituto de Biociencias, Universidade de Sao Paulo, Rua do Matao, 277, 05508 900, Sao Paulo, SP, Brazil
BMC Microbiol 8:127. 2008..Since IS elements are largely reported as an important source of bacterial genome diversification and nothing is known about their role in chromosome architecture of L. xyli, a comparative analysis of Lxc and Lxx elements was performed...

- Comparative analyses of the complete genome sequences of Pierce's disease and citrus variegated chlorosis strains of Xylella fastidiosaM A Van Sluys
Instituto de Biociência, Universidade de Sao Paulo, R do Matão 227, 05508 900 Sao Paulo, Brazil
J Bacteriol 185:1018-26. 2003..We conclude that these two organisms have identical metabolic functions and are likely to use a common set of genes in plant colonization and pathogenesis, permitting convergence of functional genomic strategies...
- Genome features of Leptospira interrogans serovar CopenhageniA L T O Nascimento
Centro de Biotecnologia, Instituto Butantan, Sao Paulo, SP, Brazil
Braz J Med Biol Res 37:459-77. 2004..Genes related to toxins, lipoproteins and several surface-exposed proteins may facilitate a better understanding of the Leptospira pathogenesis and may serve as potential candidates for vaccine...
- Comparison of the genomes of two Xanthomonas pathogens with differing host specificitiesA C R da Silva
, , Av. Prof. Lineu Prestes 748, , SP, Brazil
Nature 417:459-63. 2002..We identified several groups of strain-specific genes, and on the basis of these groups we propose mechanisms that may explain the differing host specificities and pathogenic processes...
- Comparative genomics of two Leptospira interrogans serovars reveals novel insights into physiology and pathogenesisA L T O Nascimento
Centro de Biotecnologia, Instituto Butantan, Universidade de Sao Paulo, Sao Paulo, Brazil
J Bacteriol 186:2164-72. 2004..Hundreds of genes encoding surface-exposed lipoproteins and transmembrane outer membrane proteins were identified as candidates for development of vaccines for the prevention of leptospirosis...
- Retrolyc1 subfamilies defined by different U3 LTR regulatory regions in the Lycopersicon genusP G Araujo
, , Brazil
Mol Genet Genomics 266:35-41. 2001..Transient expression analysis suggests that Retrolyc1A is a transcriptionally active family, and that the repeated motifs found in its U3 region are important transcriptional regulatory elements...
