    Transposition-mediated DNA re-replication in maize

    Jianbo Zhang et al.
    Transposition reactions that occur during DNA replication and involve the termini of adjacent transposons can induce genome expansion by re-replication of transposon-flanking sequences.

    Genomic DNA transposition induced by human PGBD5

    Anton G Henssen et al.
    The human PGBD5 gene encodes an active DNA transposase.

    Target DNA bending by the Mu transpososome promotes careful transposition and prevents its reversal

    James R Fuller, Phoebe A Rice
    Biochemical data demonstrate that the conformation of the target site DNA can dramatically modulate the kinetics and directionality of the otherwise isoenergetic transposition reaction of DDE transposases.

    RNA-guided retargeting of Sleeping Beauty transposition in human cells

    Adrian Kovač et al.
    Fusion proteins composed of the Sleeping Beauty transposase and catalytically inactive Cas9 target transposon integration into genomic regions specified by single guide RNAs.

    Multiple serine transposase dimers assemble the transposon-end synaptic complex during IS607-family transposition

    Wenyang Chen et al.
    Genetic, structural, and biochemical analyses of IS607-family transposons shows that the DNA translocation reaction proceeds very differently from other reactions promoted by serine recombinases.

    Casposase structure and the mechanistic link between DNA transposition and spacer acquisition by CRISPR-Cas

    Alison B Hickman et al.
    The tetrameric structure of a casposase bound to DNA and its biochemical properties show how a transposase could have evolved to perform CRISPR-Cas spacer acquisition.

    Functional mapping of yeast genomes by saturated transposition

    Agnès H Michel et al.
    A new method maps functional and structural features of yeast genomes with unprecedented ease and throughput, which allows identification of protein domains at the genome scale.

    Transposase-assisted tagmentation of RNA/DNA hybrid duplexes

    Bo Lu et al.
    Tn5 transposase has direct tagmentation activity towards RNA/DNA hybrids, which is harnessed as a more convenient and faster RNA-seq library construction method and will benefit RNA and chromatin research.

    A bend, flip and trap mechanism for transposon integration

    Elizabeth R Morris et al.
    Structural and biochemical analyses of a eukaryotic DNA transpososome in the integration step reveal how mariner/Tc1 transposons are selectively integrated into a TA target sequence.
