It takes two transposons to tango: transposable-element-mediated chromosomal rearrangements.

Gray, Y H M

Description

Transposable elements (TEs) promote various chromosomal rearrangements more efficiently, and often more specifically, than other cellular processes1-3. One explanation of such events is homologous recombination between multiple copies of a TE present in a genome. Although this does occur, strong evidence from a number of TE systems in bacteria, plants and animals suggests that another mechanism - alternative transposition - induces a large proportion of TE-associated chromosomal rearrangements....[Show more]

dc.description.abstractTransposable elements (TEs) promote various chromosomal rearrangements more efficiently, and often more specifically, than other cellular processes1-3. One explanation of such events is homologous recombination between multiple copies of a TE present in a genome. Although this does occur, strong evidence from a number of TE systems in bacteria, plants and animals suggests that another mechanism - alternative transposition - induces a large proportion of TE-associated chromosomal rearrangements. This paper reviews evidence for alternative transposition from a number of unrelated but structurally similar TEs. The similarities between alternative transposition and V(D)J recombination are also discussed, as is the use of alternative transposition as a genetic tool.
