    • Somatic transposition and meiotically driven elimination of an active helitron family in Pleurotus ostreatus 

      Borgognone, Alessandra Upna; Castanera Andrés, Raúl Upna; Muguerza Domínguez, Elaia Upna; Pisabarro de Lucas, Gerardo Upna; Ramírez Nasto, Lucía Upna (Oxford University Press, 2017)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      Helitrons constitute a superfamily of DNA transposons that were discovered in silico and are widespread in most eukaryotic genomes. They are postulated to mobilize through a “rollingcircle” mechanism, but the experimental ...
    • 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 ...
