Yeast Transposons

  • G. Shirleen Roeder
Part of the Genetic Engineering book series (GEPM, volume 6)

Abstract

The Ty (transposon yeast) elements of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae are a family of dispersed repeated DNA sequences. Each element consists of an internal region known as epsilon (E) and direct terminal repeats known as delta (S) sequences (1). The E region is approximately 5.4 kilobase pairs (kbp) in length and the Ss are about 330 base pairs (bp) long (Figure 1). Ty elements have recently been reviewed by Roeder and Fink (2) and by Williamson (3). This review summarizes the material covered in those articles and discusses in more detail information obtained since the writing of those papers.
