    • Highly expressed captured genes and cross-kingdom domains present in Helitrons create novel diversity in Pleurotus ostreatus and other fungi 

      Castanera Andrés, Raúl Upna; Pérez Garrido, Gumersinda Upna; López Varas, Leticia Upna; Sancho, Rubén; Santoyo Santos, Francisco Upna; Alfaro Sánchez, Manuel Upna; Gabaldón Estevan, Juan Antonio; Pisabarro de Lucas, Gerardo Upna; Oguiza Tomé, José Antonio Upna; Ramírez Nasto, Lucía Upna (BioMed Central, 2014)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      Background: Helitrons are class-II eukaryotic transposons that transpose via a rolling circle mechanism. Due to their ability to capture and mobilize gene fragments, they play an important role in the evolution of their ...
    • Transposable elements versus the fungal genome: impact on whole-genome architecture and transcriptional profiles 

      Castanera Andrés, Raúl Upna; López Varas, Leticia Upna; Borgognone, Alessandra Upna; LaButti, Kurt; Lapidus, Alla; Schmutz, Jeremy; Grimwood, Jane; Pérez Garrido, Gumersinda Upna; Pisabarro de Lucas, Gerardo Upna; Grigoriev, Igor V.; Stajich, Jason E.; Ramírez Nasto, Lucía Upna (Public Library of Science, 2016)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      Transposable elements (TEs) are exceptional contributors to eukaryotic genome diversity. Their ubiquitous presence impacts the genomes of nearly all species and mediates genome evolution by causing mutations and chromosomal ...
    • Transposon-associated epigenetic silencing during Pleurotus ostreatus life cycle 

      Borgognone, Alessandra Upna; Castanera Andrés, Raúl Upna; Morselli, Marco; López Varas, Leticia Upna; Rubbi, Liudmilla; Pisabarro de Lucas, Gerardo Upna; Pellegrini, Matteo; Ramírez Nasto, Lucía Upna (Oxford University Press, 2018)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      Transposable elements constitute an important fraction of eukaryotic genomes. Given their mutagenic potential, host-genomes have evolved epigenetic defense mechanisms to limit their expansion. In fungi, epigenetic modifications ...
    • Validation of reference genes for transcriptional analyses in Pleurotus ostreatus by using reverse transcription-quantitative PCR 

      Castanera Andrés, Raúl Upna; López Varas, Leticia Upna; Pisabarro de Lucas, Gerardo Upna; Ramírez Nasto, Lucía Upna (American Society for Microbiology, 2015)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      Recently, the lignin-degrading basidiomycete Pleurotus ostreatus has become a widely used model organism for fungal genomic and transcriptomic analyses. The increasing interest in this species has led to an increasing ...
