    APOBEC3A deaminates transiently exposed single-strand DNA during LINE-1 retrotransposition

    Sandra R Richardson et al.
    Combining in vitro and in vivo assays demonstrates that the cytidine deaminase APOBEC3A can inhibit LINE-1 retrotransposition by deaminating transiently exposed single-strand DNA that arises during the process of LINE-1 integration.

    LINE-1 protein localization and functional dynamics during the cell cycle

    Paolo Mita et al.
    A combination of functional, biochemical and imaging studies show that LINE-1/L1 proteins and mRNA enter the nucleus through mitotic nuclear membrane breakdown, interact with components of the DNA replication fork and mediate retrotransposition during S phase.

    Human LINE-1 retrotransposition requires a metastable coiled coil and a positively charged N-terminus in L1ORF1p

    Elena Khazina, Oliver Weichenrieder
    Human LINE-1 retrotransposition is found to critically depend on the rapidly evolving N-terminal sequence of the LINE-1 ORF1 protein and on the metastability of its coiled coil domain, indicating uncharacterized steps in LINE-1 retrotransposition.

    Activation of individual L1 retrotransposon instances is restricted to cell-type dependent permissive loci

    Claude Philippe et al.
    The expression of human L1 retrotransposons is highly locus-specific and variable between different cell types.

    Dissection of affinity captured LINE-1 macromolecular complexes

    Martin S Taylor et al.
    The range of molecular forms adopted by L1 retrotransposons reflect a tapestry of lifecycle-permissive and -restrictive host-parasite interactions occurring within cells.

    Mobilization of LINE-1 retrotransposons is restricted by Tex19.1 in mouse embryonic stem cells

    Marie MacLennan et al.
    Post-translational regulation of retrotransposons plays a key role in preventing retrotransposon mobilization in the epigenetically dynamic mouse germline.

    Resolving rates of mutation in the brain using single-neuron genomics

    Gilad D Evrony et al.
    The reanalysis of data from a recent study that claimed retrotransposon mutations are ubiquitous in the human brain outlines a general framework for the design and analysis of single-cell genomics studies.

    KRAB-zinc finger protein gene expansion in response to active retrotransposons in the murine lineage

    Gernot Wolf et al.
    Unbiased ChIP-seq screens and genetic knockouts of large Kruppel associated box zinc finger protein (KRAB-ZFP) clusters reveal that evolutionarily young KRAB-ZFPs play a redundant role in retrotransposon restriction in mice.

    Resolving the prevalence of somatic transposition in Drosophila

    Christoph D Treiber, Scott Waddell
    Current genome sequencing methods cannot reliably detect somatic transposition in Drosophila.

    A panel of induced pluripotent stem cells from chimpanzees: a resource for comparative functional genomics

    Irene Gallego Romero et al.
    A panel of chimpanzee induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) will help realise the potential of iPSCs in primate studies, and in combination with genomic technologies, transform studies of comparative evolution.
