    ..Mutations in the genes okra, mus309, and mei41 did not affect eccDNA under normal conditions or following mutagen treatment, implying that eccDNA formation is different from known pathways of DNA repair. ..

    ..This mechanism may involve looping-out via intrachromosomal homologous recombination. The implications of these results on genome plasticity and evolutionary processes are discussed. ..

    ..This review summarizes recent experimental data which characterizes eccDNA in several organisms using 2D gel electrophoresis, and discusses its possible implications on the dynamics of chromosomal tandem repeats. ..
