Active retrotransposons help maintain pericentromeric heterochromatin required for faithful cell division
Genome research, 2020.
Retrotransposons are populated in vertebrate genomes, and when active, are thought to cause genome instability with potential benefit to genome evolution. Retrotransposon-derived RNAs are also known to give rise to small endo-siRNAs to help maintain heterochromatin at their sites of transcription; however, as not all heterochromatic regio...More
