LTR retrotransposon dynamics in the evolution of the olive (Olea europaea) genome.

Barghini E, Natali L, Giordani T, Cossu RM, Scalabrin S, Cattonaro F, Šimková H, Vrána J, Doležel J, Morgante M, Cavallini A - DNA Res. (2014)

Bottom Line: Mapping a large set of Illumina whole-genome shotgun reads onto the identified retroelement set revealed that Gypsy elements are more redundant than Copia elements.The occurrence of numerous solo-LTRs related to isolated full-length retroelements was ascertained for two Gypsy elements and one Copia element.Overall, the results reported in this study show that RE activity (both retrotransposition and DNA loss) has impacted the olive genome structure in more ancient times than in other angiosperms.

DSU042F3: Distribution of full-length olive LTR-REs according to the ratio between the number of mapped reads per kb measured separately on LTR and inter-LTR regions.

Mentions: To estimate the equilibrium between RE replication and RE loss, Illumina reads were mapped onto each full-length LTR-RE, keeping LTR sequences separate from the respective inter-LTR region. The results of this analysis are shown in Fig. 3.Figure 3.
