    Wenfeng An
    Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD 21205, USA
    Mob DNA 2:2. 2011
    ..Owing to the elevated expression of the L1 RNA/protein and its high retrotransposition ability, ORFeus-Hs and its chimeric derivatives will be useful tools for mechanistic L1 studies and mammalian genome manipulation...
  2. pmc Plug and play modular strategies for synthetic retrotransposons
    Wenfeng An
    School of Molecular Biosciences and Center for Reproductive Biology, Washington State University, Pullman, WA 99164, USA

    Yi Xie
    School of Molecular Biosciences and Center for Reproductive Biology, Washington State University, Pullman, WA 99164, USA
    Nucleic Acids Res 39:e16. 2011
    ..Its high-throughput and short assay timeframe make it well suited for routine tests as well as large-scale screening efforts...

    Fiorella C Grandi
    School of Molecular Biosciences and Center for Reproductive Biology, Washington State University, USA
    Mol Biol Evol 30:503-12. 2013
    ..Thus, the birth of poly(A) microsatellites from retrotransposons and the subsequent rapid and variable shortening represent a new way with which retrotransposons can modify the genetic and epigenetic architecture of our genome...

    Front Biosci (Elite Ed) 4:2203-25. 2012
    ..Third, recent findings from transgenic mouse models of L1 are summarized and contrasted with those from endogenous L1 studies. Finally, the challenges and opportunities for L1 mouse models are discussed...

    Yi Xie
    School of Molecular Biosciences and Center for Reproductive Biology, Washington State University, Pullman, WA, 99164, USA
    Mob DNA 4:10. 2013
    ..However, seemingly divergent conclusions were reached. The role of cell division on retrotransposition remains highly debated...
  7. pmc Repeat-induced gene silencing of L1 transgenes is correlated with differential promoter methylation
    James M Rosser
    School of Molecular Biosciences, Washington State University, Pullman, WA 99164, USA
    Gene 456:15-23. 2010
    ..In summary, our data suggest that tandem arrayed L1 transgenes are subject to RIGS, and transgenes present at a single copy in the genome are thus recommended for modeling L1 in animals...
