Logacheva M, Schelkunov M, Nuraliev M, Samigullin T, Penin A. The plastid genome of mycoheterotrophic monocot Petrosavia stellaris exhibits both gene losses and multiple rearrangements. Genome Biol Evol. 2014;6:238-46 pubmed publisher
..Thus, the rearrangements in the P. stellaris plastome are the most likely associated with transition to heterotrophic way of life. ..
Fonstein M, Nikolskaya T, Zaporojets D, Nikolsky Y, Kulakauskas S, Mironov A. Tn10-mediated inversions fuse uridine phosphorylase (udp) and rRNA genes of Escherichia coli. J Bacteriol. 1994;176:2265-71 pubmed
..Amplified fragments of the rearranged chromosomes connecting rrnD sequences and insertion elements were sequenced, and inversion endpoints were established. ..
Tolchkov E, Kramerova I, Lavrov S, Rasheva V, Bonaccorsi S, Alatortsev V, et al
. Position-effect variegation in Drosophila melanogaster X chromosome inversion with a breakpoint in a satellite block and its suppression in a secondary rearrangement. Chromosoma. 1997;106:520-5 pubmed
..In this case, the pn, wapl and Pgd loci no longer variegate, suggesting that the satellite-containing h34 region is not able per se to induce detectable PEV on the adjacent euchromatic genes. ..

. Karyotype reorganisation in the subtilis group of birch mice (Rodentia, Dipodidae, Sicista): unexpected taxonomic diversity within a limited distribution. Cytogenet Genome Res. 2011;132:271-88 pubmed publisher
..It is thought that this occurred at the last glacial maximum (18,000-14,000 years B.P.), and that the process of isolation has been exacerbated by increasing human activity in the region in modern times...
Abramov Y, Shatskikh A, Maksimenko O, Bonaccorsi S, Gvozdev V, Lavrov S. The Differences Between Cis- and Trans-Gene Inactivation Caused by Heterochromatin in Drosophila. Genetics. 2016;202:93-106 pubmed publisher
..We demonstrate that trans-inactivation is followed by de novo HP1a accumulation in the affected transgene; trans-inactivation is specifically favored by the chromatin remodeler SAYP and prevented by Argonaute AGO2. ..
