    John P O'Donnell
    Department of Biology, Juniata College, Huntingdon, PA, USA
    Mob DNA 1:23. 2010
    ..The frequency of Ty1 mobility is temperature sensitive, with optimum activity occurring at 24-26°C...
  2. pmc Increase in Ty1 cDNA recombination in yeast sir4 mutant strains at high temperature
    Sarah J Radford
    Department of Biology, Juniata College, Huntingdon, Pennsylvania 16652, USA
    Genetics 168:89-101. 2004
    ..We speculate that the increase in recombination seen in sir4 mutants at high temperature may be due to changes in chromatin structure or Ty1 interactions with chromosomal structures resulting in higher recombination rates...

  1. The role of SIR4 in Ty1 retrotransposition
    JILL KEENEY; Fiscal Year: 2002
    ..A simple genetic assay will be used to determine if high temperature affects silencing. ..
  2. Mobility Control of a Yeast Retrotransposon
    JILL KEENEY; Fiscal Year: 2005
    ..Finally, Southern analysis will be used to determine the stability and recombination targets of Ty1 cDNA molecules in various mutant strains, and the role of Ty1 integrase in these processes. ..
