  1. Roussigne M, Kossida S, Lavigne A, Clouaire T, Ecochard V, Glories A, et al. The THAP domain: a novel protein motif with similarity to the DNA-binding domain of P element transposase. Trends Biochem Sci. 2003;28:66-9 pubmed
    ..Our results suggest that the THAP domain is a novel example of a DBD that is shared between cellular proteins and transposases from mobile genomic parasites. ..
  2. Betermier M, Lefrère V, Koch C, Alazard R, Chandler M. The Escherichia coli protein, Fis: specific binding to the ends of phage Mu DNA and modulation of phage growth. Mol Microbiol. 1989;3:459-68 pubmed
    ..Thus, Fis may modulate Mu growth by influencing the binding of transposase, or other proteins, to the transposase binding site(s), in a way similar to its influence on Xis binding in phage lambda. ..
  3. Berrada S, Fournier D. Transposition-mediated transcriptional overexpression as a mechanism of insecticide resistance. Mol Gen Genet. 1997;256:348-54 pubmed
    ..This strain had only one extra Ace gene, which overexpressed acetylcholinesterase. Thus, following transposition, resistance resulted from the overexpression of a single copy of the gene and not from gene amplification. ..
  4. Prère M, Canal I, Wills N, Atkins J, Fayet O. The interplay of mRNA stimulatory signals required for AUU-mediated initiation and programmed -1 ribosomal frameshifting in decoding of transposable element IS911. J Bacteriol. 2011;193:2735-44 pubmed publisher
    ..Because of its effect on frameshifting, the Shine-Dalgarno sequence is an important determinant of the level of transposase in IS911-containing cells, and hence of the frequency of transposition. ..
