  1. pmc Mutator transposase is widespread in the grasses
    D R Lisch
    Department of Plant and Microbial Biology, 111 Koshland Hall, University of California, Berkeley, CA 94720, USA
    Plant Physiol 125:1293-303. 2001
    ..However, the mudrB gene, though important for Mu activity in maize, is not necessarily a component of Mu elements in other grasses...

    Damon Lisch
    Dept Plant and Microbial Biology, 111 Koshland Hall, University of California at Berkeley, 94720, USA
    Trends Plant Sci 7:498-504. 2002
    ..In addition to its utility, the means by which this widespread and highly mutagenic system is held in check should help us to address fundamental issues concerning the stability of genomes...
  3. pmc Initiation, establishment, and maintenance of heritable MuDR transposon silencing in maize are mediated by distinct factors
    Margaret Roth Woodhouse
    Department of Plant and Microbial Biology, University of California Berkeley, Berkeley, California, USA
    PLoS Biol 4:e339. 2006
    ..Together, these data suggest that the establishment and maintenance of MuDR silencing have distinct requirements...
  4. pmc Horizontal transfer of a plant transposon
    Xianmin Diao
    Department of Plant and Microbial Biology, University of California, Berkeley, California, USA
    PLoS Biol 4:e5. 2006
    ..This is the first well-documented example of horizontal transfer of any nuclear-encoded genes between higher plants...
  5. pmc The mop1 (mediator of paramutation1) mutant progressively reactivates one of the two genes encoded by the MuDR transposon in maize
    Margaret Roth Woodhouse
    Department of Plant and Microbial Biology, University of California, Berkeley, California 94720, USA
    Genetics 172:579-92. 2006
    ..Conversely, mudrB expression is never restored, its TIR remains methylated, and new insertions of Mu elements are not observed. These data suggest that mudrA and mudrB silencing may be maintained via distinct mechanisms...
  6. ncbi request reprint Heritable transposon silencing initiated by a naturally occurring transposon inverted duplication
    R Keith Slotkin
    Department of Plant and Microbial Biology, 111 Koshland Hall, University of California Berkeley, Berkeley, California 94720, USA
    Nat Genet 37:641-4. 2005

    Jaswinder Singh
    Plant Science Department, McGill University, Macdonald Campus, Ste Anne de Bellevue, Quebec, Canada
    PLoS Genet 4:e1000216. 2008
    ..This raises the interesting possibility that an important feature of local chromatin environments may be the capacity to erase previously established epigenetic marks...

    R Keith Slotkin
    Department of Plant and Microbial Biology, University of California, Berkeley, California 94720, USA
    Genetics 165:781-97. 2003
    ..MuDR elements silenced by Muk remain silenced even in plants that do not inherit Muk, suggesting that Muk is required for the initiation of MuDR silencing but not for its maintenance...
  11. pmc A mutation that prevents paramutation in maize also reverses Mutator transposon methylation and silencing
    Damon Lisch
    Department of Plant Sciences, 303 Forbes Hall, University of Arizona, Tucson, AZ 85721, USA
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 99:6130-5. 2002
    ..Our results suggest that the mop1 gene acts on a subset of epigenetically regulated sequences in the maize genome and paramutation and Mu element methylation require a common factor, which we hypothesize influences chromatin structure...
