    An epigenetic switch ensures transposon repression upon dynamic loss of DNA methylation in embryonic stem cells

    Marius Walter et al.
    The various transposon families of the mammalian genome can adopt different types of repressive chromatin responses upon DNA methylation loss.

    Dimerisation of the PICTS complex via LC8/Cut-up drives co-transcriptional transposon silencing in Drosophila

    Evelyn L Eastwood et al.
    Heterochromatin formation at transposon loci depends on dimerisation of the effector complex that elicits co-transcriptional silencing and this requirement is fulfilled by co-option of the conserved dimerisation hub protein, Cut-up/LC8.

    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.

    The autoregulation of a eukaryotic DNA transposon

    Corentin Claeys Bouuaert et al.
    A DNA transposon, or ‘jumping gene’, controls its amplification within a genome through a competition between the enzyme multimers that are responsible for its mobility.

    Natural depletion of histone H1 in sex cells causes DNA demethylation, heterochromatin decondensation and transposon activation

    Shengbo He et al.
    Transposon activation during male gametogenesis is caused by interactions between DNA demethylation and linker histone H1, developmental depletion of which promotes pollen fertility.

    piRNA-guided co-transcriptional silencing coopts nuclear export factors

    Martin H Fabry et al.
    A member of the Drosophila Nuclear Export Factor (Nxf) family, Nxf2, forms part of the piRNA-dependent co-transcriptional silencing complex and is essential for transposon repression in fly ovaries.

    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.

    A new role for histone demethylases in the maintenance of plant genome integrity

    Javier Antunez-Sanchez et al.
    Plants reset chromatin marks during sexual reproduction to safeguard the stability of the genome.

    Regulation of rice root development by a retrotransposon acting as a microRNA sponge

    Jungnam Cho, Jerzy Paszkowski
    Retrotransposon-derived messenger RNA plays a critical role in rice root development via sequestration of miR171, which suggests a novel trans-acting regulation by transposable elements.

    Building the vertebrate codex using the gene breaking protein trap library

    Noriko Ichino et al.
    The analysis of the first 1000 revertible protein trap alleles in zebrafish resulted in new functional genomic annotations and produced a panel of potential new models of human disease.
