    Weidong Bao
    Genetic Information Research Institute, Mountain View, CA, USA
    Mob DNA 1:3. 2010
    ..In this paper we analyze a diverse superfamily of eukaryotic cut and paste DNA transposons coding for INT-like transposase and discuss their evolutionary relationship to LTR retrotransposons...
  2. pmc Modeling the asymmetric evolution of a mouse and rat-specific microRNA gene cluster intron 10 of the Sfmbt2 gene
    Stefan Lehnert
    Gene Expression Unit, Department of Molecular Cell Biology, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven
    BMC Genomics 12:257. 2011
    ..Recent data in humans and opossum indicate that retrotranspons of the class of short interspersed nuclear elements have contributed to the growth of microRNA gene clusters...
  3. pmc RAG1 core and V(D)J recombination signal sequences were derived from Transib transposons
    Vladimir V Kapitonov
    Genetic Information Research Institute, Mountain View, California, USA
    PLoS Biol 3:e181. 2005
    ..We also suggest that the RAG2 protein was not encoded by ancient Transib transposons but emerged in jawed vertebrates as a counterpart of RAG1 necessary for the V(D)J recombination reaction...

    Trends Genet 23:521-9. 2007
    ..Helitrons seem to have a major role in the evolution of host genomes. They frequently capture diverse host genes, some of which can evolve into novel host genes or become essential for helitron transposition...
