Cross-regulation between transposable elements and host DNA replication

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

5 Scopus citations


Transposable elements subvert host cellular functions to ensure their survival. Their interaction with the host DNA replication machinery indicates that selective pressures lead them to develop ancestral and convergent evolutionary adaptations aimed at conserved features of this fundamental process. These interactions can shape the co-evolution of the transposons and their hosts.
